CU System briefs (11/21/2008)
* JACKSON, Mich. (11/24/08)--Jackson Community FCU, based in Jackson, Mich., announced it will close one of its three branches at the end of the year. CEO James Francis, in a letter to members, said the Wildwood Avenue office will close, with employees of that branch moving to the $24.9 million asset credit union's main office on Ganson Street (Jackson Citizen Patriot Nov. 21). The move is an effort to reduce expenses to satisfy the credit union's regulators, the letter said. The closure will allow the credit union to have four or more teller each day of the week. The Ganson Street's office also will expand drive-through hours. Beginning Jan. 5, the drive-through will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday … * RALEIGH, N.C.

"While $1,000 may go a little ways toward helping with tuition, it will go most of, if not all, the way in helping to pay for a laptop and textbooks," he said … * GREENSBORO, N.C. (11/24/08)--The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is awarding a $15,000 Micro Community Grant to Hope for the Warriors, for its Warrior's Wish Program, which grants wishes to severely injured service members (Weekly Update Nov. 21). Micro Community Grants allow credit unions in North and South Carolina to partner with local nonprofit agencies to bring community benefit. The grant proposal was put together with the help of the Southeast Chapter of Credit Unions and Marine FCU.
