Pa. (5/5/14)--One of the credit union movement's icons is Joseph Stern's "Little Man Under the Umbrella,"and employees at Sun East FCU, Aston, Pa., modeled it well last week.
The $486 million-asset credit union has a mobile branch that it uses to bring services to elderly residents at Lima Estates, a retirement center in Media, Pa.
Heavy rain was falling during last week's regularly scheduled visit--one that the members rely on. The employees held umbrellas for the members, keeping them dry while accompanying them to the mobile branch (Life is a Highway May 2).
The employees may have been wet and cold, but the memory of that extra mile in member service warmed the hearts of the credit union leadership.
The two employees earned True Blue cards, part of Sun East FCU's internal recognition program.
