Thank you to all those credit unions that participated by submitting their entries. All were great projects and show your countless efforts in carrying out the “people helping people” philosophy. There are many great works out there by credit unions that did not submit an entry. The LSCU encourages all credit unions to submit their good works to be recognized on a state and possibly a national level.
