Robbery stops ICU Day event at CU
HARRISBURG, Pa. (10/27/09)--An armed man robbed the Lebanon (Pa.) FCU (LFCU) on International Credit Union (ICU) Day, Oct. 15, stopping its ICU Day events. However, the credit union donated hundreds of spray hand sanitizers--originally purchased for members as part of the ICU Day celebration--to local elementary schools, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (Life is a Highway Oct. 26). The robbery occurred at 9:21 a.m., when a man entered the $136.6 million asset credit union, displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash from the tellers (Pennlive.com Oct. 16). He placed the cash in a duffle bag and fled on foot. Several members were in the credit union at the time, but no one was injured, according to police (Lebanon Daily News Oct. 15). The robbery closed the credit union, ending all its ICU Day events, which included a live radio broadcast, Italian Ice cart, autographed footballs from Bill Bergey and "lots of food." The credit union board decided area schools could use the hand sanitizers to help fight cold and flu germs. "This is taking an unfortunate event that happened to our credit union and using it to benefit our community," Pat Hain, CEO, said. "Keeping kids and families safe and making our community a stronger and better place is LFCU's goal."
