Island celebrates Grand Opening of Massapequa location with “Money Ribbon” donation

HAUPPAUGE, NY (December 4, 2013) — Island Federal Credit Union (Island), headquartered in Hauppauge, opened its newest branch in Massapequa in October. Located at 824 Hicksville Road, it is Island’s seventh branch and the second new location to open within the past six months.

The Grand Opening Celebration, held on October 23, was attended by local business leaders, members of the North Massapequa Fire Department, Island Board members, management and employees. The highlight of the event was the cutting of a $1,000 “Money Ribbon,” representing Island’s donation to the North Massapequa Fire Department’s community outreach program.

“All of us at Island are very excited about the opening of the Massapequa branch,” commented Island VP/COO Paul Young. “We have already developed relationships with organizations in the local community including the North Massapequa Fire Department and the Massapequa Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to the entire community getting to know Island, our full range of banking services and our customer-focused team led by Angela Fulgieri.”

Angela Fulgieri, the Massapequa Branch Manager, commented, “I am extremely excited to be working in such a vital and family-oriented community.” Angela, who had previously managed Island’s Bellmore branch, is a life-long Nassau resident with more than 15 years of banking experience. “Whether you want a great rate on your savings or for your borrowing needs, stop by and see me. We are offering some really attractive Certificate and loan specials.”

All Island branches will join in celebrating the Massapequa Grand Opening Celebration, and Island announced two new, limited-time special offers. First, Island is giving 1% cash back to borrowers who refinance their loan from another lender. This offer is available for auto, personal and home equity loans, credit cards, or lines of credit. Not only can borrowers benefit from refinancing their loans at some of the best rates anywhere, but they can also receive cash back up to $500 deposited directly into their Island checking account. Second, for those looking for a superior rate on their savings, Island is also offering several specials including a 4-month Certificate, with a rate of 1.00% APY.

Island’s Massapequa branch, like all of its other full service branches, is open six days per week, with a 24/7 ATM and a coin machine that is free for all account holders.
