WASHINGTON (3/11/15)--Food trucks bearing free coffee and breakfast treats from local small businesses flanked the Senate and House of Representatives sides of the Capitol this morning, sharing the credit union message with passers-by.
The outreach event--sponsored by CUNA--offered complimentary coffee, hot cocoa, doughnuts and cookies to visitors and staff in the Hill area.
Attendees of CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference head to visit their congressional delegates today and Thursday. This morning's event aimed to increase awareness of the credit union difference and how credit unions support and are involved in their communities.
The free treats included coffee and hot cocoa from Carmen's Italian Ice and Cafe; doughnuts from Goodies Frozen Custard and Treats, and Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken; and coffee and cookies from Captain Cookie and the Milkman.
Kirk Francis, founder of Captain Cookie, is a member of Pentagon FCU, Alexandria, Va.
