Security Service Federal Credit Union marks the opening of McColl Branch with donation to Salvation Army

$3,000 donation to help those less fortunate in McAllen community

SAN ANTONIO, TX (April 8, 2016) — Highlighting a dedication to its members and to the community, Security Service Federal Credit Union officially marked the grand opening of its 71st branch with a donation to the Salvation Army.

The McColl Branch, located at 621 East Pecan Boulevard in McAllen, Texas, features four drive-thru lanes, two drive-thru ATMs, and safety deposit boxes.  In addition, there are more than 6,400 square feet of interior space with several private member service offices to help fill a need in the Rio Grande Valley.

“In this day and age of self-service, we recognize there are still financial services that are better handled face to face in a branch setting,” said Jim Laffoon, president and CEO of Security Service Federal Credit Union.  “In every interaction with our members, there are two traits that distinguish our service – patience and kindness.  This new branch will allow us to expand upon our service to our members and our dedication to the Rio Grande Valley community.”

Security Service works with a variety of non-profit agencies to help make a difference in the communities served.  To celebrate the grand opening, credit union leadership presented the Salvation Army of McAllen with a $3,000 donation.

“We appreciate community partners such as Security Service who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others,” said Capt. Luis Melendez, commanding officer for the Salvation Army of McAllen.  “This money will be used for everyday essentials and to help support our emergency shelter.”

Community leaders joined the Salvation Army and Security Service leadership in opening the branch with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.  The McColl Branch is the credit union’s fourth location in the lower Rio Grande Valley community.  Security Service is located throughout Texas, Colorado and Utah.
