Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) presents a tasty surprise to their building’s security guard

BANNOCKBURN, IL (August 24, 2016) — On Friday, August 19th, employees from GLCU’s Chicago office surprised their charismatic Security Guard, Brenda Ruiz, with an Edible Arrangement bouquet and a $100 Visa gift card! For several years, Ruiz has been a beloved Security Guard for the AT&T building in which GLCU is located (225 W. Randolph St., Chicago, IL).

When Marilyn Kolodziej, GLCU’s Chicago Branch Manager, was asked about this act of kindness she stated, “Ever since we moved into this building Brenda has been a big promoter of the credit union. Not only is she a member, but she looks out for us too. If she hears something coming from our lobby area that sounds suspicious to her she will give us a call to make sure everything is ok. It felt good to let her know how much we appreciate her.”

All year long employees at GLCU branches are performing various random acts of kindness as a way to make a direct impact and give back to their communities.
