volunteers raised the awareness of legislative staffers, state and private employees, and pedestrians as they roamed the streets surrounding the state’s capitol and legislative building. The volunteers recently spent the day in Albany as part of the Credit Union Association of New York’s awareness campaign, called creditunionsFORYOU.com. “Marker Man,” the campaign mascot, helped draw attention to the volunteers as they held doors open for state workers and chatted with passers-by. The volunteers also manned booths in the Capitol Concourse and outdoors at West Capitol Park. Volunteers were given a credit union awareness T-shirt to wear for the day and were equipped with talking points about the credit union difference, as well as markers to use as giveaways, said the association.
