October 18, 2019

More than 60 Illinois credit unions participated in CU Kind Day Oct. 14, a day of service designed to put the credit union motto of “people helping people” into action. Launched by the Illinois Credit Union League, the day featured more than 2,400 credit union volunteers impacting more than 20,000 individuals throughout the state.

“I’m so proud to work in an industry that focuses on people over profits,” said Illinois Credit Union League President Tom Kane. “With credit unions, ‘people helping people’ is more than just a nice phrase, it’s the reason for everything we do. The CU Kind Day initiative is a demonstration of that mindset – it’s the credit union difference in action!”
