Whether you're looking forward to summer fun with a boat, ATV, motorcycle or RV or hitting the road in a new or newish car, check with your credit union first.
Ohio University Credit Union was recently honored with two Diamond Awards, which recognizes outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.
The awards were presented by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council, a national network comprised of over 1,200 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 30 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.
Ohio University Credit Union won the Miscellaneous category for its entry, entitled Guiding Principles Calendar. This monthly wall calendar features the works of local Passion Works Studio artists coupled with OUCU Guiding Principle concepts. The calendar was introduced to the community with a special artists’ signing event at the credit union. Ohio University Credit Union also won in the Internal Marketing Incentive/Recognition category for its Guiding Principles program entry. This internal program includes several components including an employee recognition and an employee volunteer program. Credit union employees have volunteered 222 hours for local Athens organizations.

Throughout May, OUCU is collecting unopened jars of peanut butter and jelly to help feed children in our local community who may otherwise go without basic nutrition over the summer. Last year, Athens County Children Services was able to serve 1,600 local families through this program. Collection boxes are located in both OUCU branches, and we encourage members to donate to this fantastic program.
Through the year, we will be giving members the chance to win the original Passion Works paintings that were used in the OUCU Guiding Principles 2016 Calendar!
Stop by either OUCU branch or give us a call at 740-597-2800 to enter the raffle for just $1, all of which will go to support Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Athens County and their Bowl for Kids Sake event.
The May piece being raffled off is "The Whole Family is Here" by Patty Naffzinger.
May drawing ends 5/31/16.

A member for over 20 years, Lucy Behm was the lucky $1,000 grand prize winner during the spring Bill Pay sweepstakes promotion!
All members who utilized our Bill Pay system this spring were automatically entered into the sweepstakes along with members of other credit unions around the country, and we were thrilled to find out that Lucy was the grand prize winner! Lucy paid us a visit here at OUCU and was presented with her winnings, which she then used to take her great-grandchildren on an exciting vacation to Myrtle Beach!
She also wanted to mention to us that she "has not had one problem here" and stated, "I have been very pleased with the service here." Thank you for being one of our great longtime members, Lucy, and congratulations!

OUCU has partnered with GM and Invest in America to help collect old cell phones.
The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone -- the money is used to purchase prepaid calling cards which are sent to troops.
Cell phone donations are accepted at both OUCU branches. You can even donate phones that are no longer in working condition -- they will be dismantled and recycled to reclaim some materials.
