COLUMBUS, OH (July 1, 2021) — Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU) celebrated its ongoing commitment to the Columbus area with a week-long grand opening celebration of its new Gahanna member center, which officially opened its doors on June 21st. Throughout the week, activities heightened awareness of WPCU and how it strives to make life a little easier for its members and surrounding community.

WPCU members who completed transactions at the new member center were given gift bags or gift cards in appreciation of their visit. Current and future members participated in a “Win/Win” drawing for the opportunity to win $500 for themselves with matching funds distributed to a local charity of their choice. In addition, local business and community leaders gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and after-hours event that highlighted Wright-Patt Credit Union’s partnership with the Gahanna community.

“The City of Gahanna is excited to welcome Wright-Patt Credit Union to our growing business community.  Having strong financial institutions that are focused on resident engagement is an asset in any city,” said Laurie Jadwin, Mayor, City of Gahanna.
