'Digest' Spotlights CU Efforts
It takes no arm-twisting to motivate Jennifer Gorden to rally in support of credit unions. Her reason is simple.
“Credit unions have been there for me since I was young, when my mother opened an account for me,” said Gorden, an accountant for United Health CU.
Now, more than ever, it’s time to give back to credit unions—and to step up and advocate like never before, she says.
Gorden is one of thousands of credit union employees in California and Nevada who are shifting their volunteer spirit into high gear as the threat of federal taxation rears its head once again. The “all hands on deck” philosophy is striking a chord with staff, volunteers, and members nationwide who have eagerly answered the call to spread the “Don’t Tax My Credit Union” message.
