Making a first impression count: Affinity Federal Credit Union’s inaugural “In Your Neighborhood” Event a success

MALBOROUGH, MA (April 30, 2018) — Affinity Federal Credit Union introduced itself to Stony Point, N.Y. by hosting an “In Your Neighborhood” event in partnership with the Cooperative Credit Union Association.

The Cooperative Credit Union Association’s “In Your Neighborhood” events allow credit unions to introduce themselves to their communities by connecting with residents in places they frequent and treating them to a cup of coffee or something to eat.

Affinity’s event was held at Deli Central in Stony Point, and patrons were given discounts of up to $5 towards their lunch for a few moments of time to discuss the credit union difference.

“Affinity prides itself on being a Community Connected, and this event was the perfect way to showcase this to the residents of Stony Point,” said Jeanine Cortez, Branch Manager of Affinity’s new Stony Point location. “We were thrilled to meet residents first-hand, and are excited to show them the many benefits of credit union membership, such as receiving superior service and community involvement to truly impact the Stony Point community.”

Affinity recently completed a merger with NEA Credit Union and the “In Your Neighborhood” event gave its team members the opportunity to present themselves to the community.

“It was great to see so many patrons who already knew about the Affinity and loved it, but also to see the number of people who were truly interested in learning more about its products and services. One young man was excited about the prospect of opening an account at the credit union and working on building his credit with an auto loan,” said Candice Nigro, vice president of strategic marketing with CCUA and who was on-site for the event.

The Cooperative Credit Union Association completes “In Your Neighborhood” events as part of its “Better Values, Better Banking” consumer awareness campaign. The events allow CCUA member credit unions to present themselves to the communities they serve and bring awareness to the credit union difference.
