Methuen FCU sponsored one of the finalists for the CCUA essay contest

Organized by the Cooperative Credit Union Association, administered by the Massachusetts Chapters, and delivered directly through the credit unions, the Massachusetts Credit Union Student Essay Contest program provides a unique opportunity for credit unions to demonstrate their involvement in their local community through outreach to schools, families, and young people, and engagement in an educational activity.

Opened to seventh and eighth graders, participating students this year were asked to write an essay of 250 words or less on the following topic:

If you were the CEO of your local credit union, what would you have your credit union do to show that you truly believe in the ‘People Helping People’ philosophy of the credit union movement?


Shred Day

We hired a Shred Company to bring the truck on June 13th for our annual Shred Day. It is always a pleasant event as we get to socialize with our members and safely dispose of sensitive documents. However, they had issue with a truck and did not show up.

We stored over the weekend all boxes in our back room which is under surveillance/alarm monitoring 24/7. On Tuesday, June 16th Shred Truck arrived at our location and we were able to monitor safe disposal of every box our members left at the credit union.

Once again, we apologize for inconveniencing our members.

More children’s books at the YMCA, thanks to Methuen Federal Credit Union

Methuen, Massachusetts, May 16, 2018 … CEO James Brouder and Operations Manager Jo-Ann Conlon of Methuen Federal Credit Union (MFCU) visited the Methuen Branch YMCA recently with over 300 new and gently used children’s books donated by MFCU members and others in the community during the second annual “Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader!” children’s book drive.

The project, held in conjunction with the Cooperative Credit Union Association’s community outreach commitment, was also endorsed by the Methuen Exchange Club.

This year’s book drive more than doubled last year’s results, according to Brouder.

We were extremely pleased that so many of our members and neighbors stepped up to help. We wish they could have seen for themselves how excited the children at the Y were when they saw the new books we brought for their Little Free Library. There were smiles all around!
