First Financial named Baltimore’s Best Credit Union/Bank

SPARKS, MD (July 22, 2021) — Each year, readers of The Baltimore Sun cast their votes for the area’s best businesses — and once again, First Financial Federal Credit Union has been recognized as the Best Credit Union/Bank. Published in the Baltimore Sun Readers’ Choice 2021 Awards and decided by popular vote, the awards recognize outstanding local service and customer satisfaction over the past year for businesses and organizations throughout Baltimore City and Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford, and Howard Counties.

Contributing to the win was First Financial’s continued commitment to its member rewards program, personal service, and support of its community and members. Over the last year, First Financial offered members additional resources and services to provide much-needed financial relief through the COVID-19 pandemic. To serve its community and those in need, the credit union also gave back with countless volunteer hours and generous donations to organizations such as the Maryland Food Bank, Baltimore-area hospitals, Carroll County Food Sunday and Baltimore County Public Schools.

First Financial President and CEO, Eric Church, was thrilled by the news. “We are honored to receive this recognition again from our loyal members and community,” he said. “We thank all those who voted as well as everyone’s hard work and dedication to our organization. This recognition is a true testament to our commitment to making a difference in the lives of our members and community each and every day.”
