A little kindness goes a long way

To celebrate our 75th Anniversary in 2017, we started what we call Random Acts of Kindness — that is, we encourage our Associates, Members and communities to do something charitable for others, whether that’s a friendly wave to let another motorist in, picking up the lunch tab for a first responder or donating to a food or school supply drive.

City Credit Union continues to encourage Random Acts of Kindness in 2019. Won’t you join us?
