AEA FCU members say thank you
YUMA, Ariz. (12/01/10)--AEA FCU was virtually wallpapered with handwritten “thank you” notes after it asked members and employees to write down what they were grateful for this Thanksgiving (YumaSun.com Nov. 29) The credit union placed note pads with the heading, “I am thankful for … ” at each teller window, with markers and tap for members share their thoughts and post them on the counter. The notes of gratitude ranged from the very specific--one member was thankful for Starbucks--to the more global and, perhaps, universal, such as freedom, families and faith. Members thought so much of the idea that they asked if they could take the note pads to their schools, churches and other local organizations. The $348 million asset, Yuma, Ariz.-based credit union showed its gratitude during November by donating a turkey to a local homeless shelter for each vehicle financed that was purchased through a local dealership.
