Thursday, October 18, 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of International Credit Union Day. This year’s theme is “Find Your Platinum Lining.” It combines the traditional gift of platinum for 70th anniversaries with a play on the saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
We're happy to announce that Hanscom Federal Credit Union has been named as the Department of the Air Force's Credit Union of the Year for 2017 in the $1 billion and above category. It's an honor that's given every year to an Air Force credit union that offers the highest quality financial products and services, as well as demonstrates membership growth and community support.
Hanscom Federal Credit Union has named Sgt. Ryan D. Jallad, U.S. Army, as its third Heroes Among Us honoree in 2018.
Sgt. Jallad was honored at a Lowell Spinners game played against the Vermont Lake Monsters on August 6, where he met some of the players, threw the first pitch of the game, enjoyed delicious summertime food at The Home Plate BBQ, and watched the Spinners win from a prime spot at LeLacheur Park.
Employees at Hanscom FCU's main office on Hanscom Air Force Base welcomed home military and civilian service members. Nearly 50 service members returned to base within the last year after being deployed overseas.
On a glorious spring evening last month, Hanscom Federal Credit Union participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Burlington, MA, raising a grand total of $12,860 through a variety of channels, the most ever raised by Hanscom FCU’s “4 A Cure” 17-member team. ("4 A Cure" was also the top fundraiser in this year's event. Go team!) Throughout the year, the team surpassed its own financial goal of raising $5,000 by hosting fundraisers and collecting pledges from friends, family, and co-workers.
On Friday, September 7, our branches will be celebrating Member Appreciation Day. Stop by and let us show you how much we appreciate your continued support of our growing, not-for-profit financial cooperative, which now has 21 branches and over 84,000 members. We know that our growth and success is only possible because of loyal members like you, so let us shower you with a little gratitude.
This year Hanscom Federal Credit Union celebrates 65 years of service to its members! Hanscom FCU was chartered in 1953 when eight members were granted authority to form a credit union. The organization was opened on Hanscom AFB two years later. Today, we serve over 82,000 members through our 21 branches and online banking website.
Team Hanscom FCU – Elizabeth, Andy, and Ray
Despite some of the worst weather in Boston Marathon history, our Team Hanscom FCU runners pushed through the difficult conditions and finished the race, raising approximately $44,000 along the way. Your generous contributions will be given to Credit Union Kids at Heart, which last year donated $180,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital. Thank you for contributing to this effort!
