On Thursday, October 15th, Wanigas Credit Union will be celebrating the 72nd anniversary of International Credit Union (ICU) Day! This year's ICU Day theme “Inspiring Hope for a Global Community” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through financial services, education and support. This year's global health crisis has been trying for many communities around the world, but credit unions stayed true to their cooperative principles and stepped up during this time of economic uncertainty. The ultimate goal of ICU Day is to raise awareness about what it means for credit union members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner.

Events going on at Wanigas during the week of October 12th - October 16th:

CU Lunch Local

On Tuesday, October 13th, Wanigas encourages our staff, members and community to participate in a 'cash mob' by buying lunch and other various treats throughout the day from local restaurants.

The goal of CU Lunch Local, founded by Michigan Business Connection in 2012, is to drive positive awareness of the credit union industry’s goal to support local businesses.
