Credit Union ONE Announces Hometown Winners

FERNDALE, MI (June 20, 2013) What does “Hometown” mean to you?

Well in the world of credit unions, it means community.  To Credit Union ONE, it means being dedicated to giving back to the communities in which they serve, which is why three local Michigan charities each just received a $500 donation.

In honor of their 75th Anniversary, Credit Union ONE held a Hometown Charity Giveaway on their Facebook page, where fans voted between the dates of May 8th and June 7th for one of ten local charities and also a write-in option, with the top vote getters being declared the winners.  Those new to the Facebook site were able to “like” Credit Union ONE to become eligible to vote, and even those who are not Facebook users were able to vote at their favorite Credit Union ONE branch.  Besides all the votes received for the ten charities, there were over sixty write-in entries which will be considered for upcoming contests next year.

Congratulations to the Judson Center of Royal Oak, Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center and Salon in St. Clair Shores, and Kids Kicking Cancer of Detroit for on winning the contest!!!
