Florida Telco Credit Union continues to make good on its marketing message of “Helping People Every Day” by launching a unique community initiative appropriately titled Helping People Every Day.

In honor of its 75th anniversary of serving Jacksonville with honesty and integrity, Florida Telco is giving others a unique opportunity to help someone, with support from the credit union. All residents in the Greater Jacksonville Area have been invited to submit their ideas via Facebook, on how they would help their community if given the opportunity. The winning submission will be awarded $750 toward the proposed initiative. 

To spread the word, Florida Telco has been brightening people’s mornings with simple gestures. Over the past weeks, customers have been surprised as they reach for their wallets at local coffee shops and restaurants, only to find their purchase is compliments of Florida Telco Credit Union. “It’s nice to see that Florida Telco gets it,” said Diane Rugev, owner of The Brick Coffee House in downtown Jacksonville. “They’re going one door at a time to get the message out and help the community.”

“Our hope is that a little random goodwill one to one on the streets can get our message across that Florida Telco is truly a community credit union,” said Florida Telco VP Cindy Breslin. “We have been asking in exchange that people try to help someone else today.” Christy Southwell, manager of a local Chick-fil-A said, “People get really excited and we got to have a lot of fun with it too.”

The list of submissions has grown tremendously over the past several weeks and has been narrowed down to the top 10 submissions. The winning idea will be chosen June 22nd with the help of feedback from the social network and credit union members.

“We strive to provide our community with one to one personal service to meet all aspects of their financial needs,” said Breslin. “We expect this program will do a lot to spark some random acts of kindness and demonstrate our dedication to the Jacksonville community.”
