Good morning!

As your constituents strive to provide a meaningful holiday season for their loved ones, America's credit unions will be there to ensure they remain financially healthy and strong.  

This holiday season, the average consumer will spend over $1,000 on gifts and related expenses. With programs like budgeting workshops, interest-free loan deferrals, and higher interest savings accounts, credit unions in your community are investing time, staff, and capital to keep your constituents in the green this winter, ensuring a happy holiday season for all.  

By supporting credit unions' not-for profit mission, you're sustaining the financial wellness of your community and the 115 million Americans across the country who have chosen to make credit unions their financial partner.
