WESTconsin Credit Union Celebrates Cooperatives and Credit Unions in October


WESTERN, WI— Since 1948, National Cooperative Month and International Credit Union Day®, have been celebrated in October to raise awareness of a trusted, proven way to do business and build communities. This year’s ICU Day® will take place on October 20 and will observe the theme "Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union™." WESTconsin has many activities planned to celebrate these occasions and benefit local communities.

Beginning September 26 through the end of October, World’s Finest Chocolate® bars will be available for purchase in all WESTconsin offices for $1 each. Proceeds will help local kids when they need it the most through the efforts of the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. Additionally, employees will have a special opportunity to support CMN hospitals from September 26 through October 1, by participating in WESTconsin’s Spirit Week—Cheers to CMN Champions!
