Drawing for Quilt - Funds to Benefit Breast Cancer Awareness

The credit union is accepting $1 tickets towards a drawing for the quilt pictured above. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go towards our Breast Cancer Awareness fundraising campaign. Currently, the quilt can be seen at our main office on Whitesburg Drive. The quilt will also be displayed at our Sparkman Drive and Madison Branch offices in the coming weeks. It was first displayed at our Athens office. Special thanks are extended to one of our employees, Leah Miller, for taking the time to create this beautiful quilt for the drawing. Pictures don't do justice to the quilt so stop by and see it for yourself. We appreciate the participation of our membership in the various Breast Cancer Awareness fundraising efforts throughout the year.

Credit Union Day & Shred-it Day

On Friday, October 16th, the credit union will be hosting Credit Union Day and Shred-it Day for our credit union members. Complimentary refreshments will be provided at our Main Office, Sparkman Branch, Madison Branch, and the Athens Branch on October 16th. Each of these offices also has a gift basket that will be awarded by a drawing at the close of business on Friday. Members can register all week for the drawing. (Please limit entries to one per day).

A popular service for members has been our semi-annual free shredding service. Our 2nd "Shred-it Day" this year will be held at our Main Office on Whitesburg Drive on Friday, October 16th between the hours of 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Document Destruction Services will have their truck parked in our front parking lot to provide this free service. All records will be destroyed on-site within clear view of the member. MARK YOUR CALENDARS! We always hear from members who wanted to shred documents but forgot about the "Shred-it Day". This information was included in our last newsletter. We do ask that members restrict their shred items to paper items only and limit the amount to 40 pounds.

We appreciate our credit union members and hope that you stop by to enjoy the activities this Friday.

Home & Family Finance Resource Center

Credit union members have another good resource available with the addition of the Home & Family Finance Resource Center on our web site. This site is hosted by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) for use by subscribing credit unions across the country. The web site provides very useful tips, articles, and videos to help educate consumers about a wide variety of financial topics. There are monthly "Family Fitness Challenges" that award cash prizes. Members of all ages can benefit by visiting the site. Teachers may even find some of the resource information helpful for their students. A link to the Home & Family Finance Resource Center is listed on our "HOME" page and "WEB LINKS" page of North Alabama Educators Credit Union. For now, you can click on the logo above to visit the site.

North Alabama Educators Credit Union is pleased to make this online financial resource available for the purpose of helping to improve financial literacy. Money doesn't come with instructions and financial mistakes can take years to overcome. Financial education is a good thing!
