Credit Union West celebrates new Papago branch with grand opening event and employee donation

GLENDALE, AZ (July 24, 2023) — Credit Union West celebrated their new Papago branch with a Grand Opening and ribbon cutting event earlier this month. The new branch is conveniently located at 2303 N. 44th Street in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. The event featured raffle prizes, special offers, food and refreshments, and a donation check presentation to a local non-profit charity from Credit Union West employees.

“We’re happy to be here at our new branch in Phoenix,” said Karen Roch, President and CEO of Credit Union West. “We love this location because of its convenience for our members and we’re very excited about expanding our footprint in the Valley.”

As part of the celebration, Credit Union West was proud to present a donation check for $5,704.74 to the Arizona chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). The donation was the second of four in the credit union’s 2023 EmployeesCARE Program. The program is fully funded by Credit Union West employees and awards funds to four recipients chosen by staff each year. AFSP Arizona was chosen for their important work in providing education, resources, and support to individuals and families affected by suicide.

“I am so proud of the employees at Credit Union West for their generosity, not just with funding, but also with their time in volunteering,” said Roch. “The Arizona Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is such an important organization that helps so many families locally and it’s very close to our hearts.”
