Credit Unions 'Pay It Forward' in Johnson City, TN
The Tennessee Credit Union League did something nice on Thursday, Feb. 18 - it bought groceries for shoppers across the Volunteer State.
In Johnson City, TN, representatives from several local credit unions, including The Tennessee Credit Union, were at the downtown Food City Thursday morning offering to buy the groceries for random shoppers. The plan was to catch people when they were checking out. No particular person was targeted, just random people who came to the register. The goal was to provide as many people as possible with free groceries.
“Events like this demonstrate the Credit Union philosophy of ‘people helping people.’ It truly represents the credit union difference – we give back to our communities in many ways.” said Olivia Rumley, branch manager at The Tennessee Credit Union’s Johnson City location (pictured on left).
“Personally, it was an amazing opportunity to participate in a random act of kindness, which is never wasted,” added Rumley. “How great is it that our kind actions and good deeds can make someone else’s entire day a little brighter.”
It was reported that the Tennessee Credit Union League spent $10,000 on groceries across the state on Thursday.
The Tennessee Credit Union has been helping members achieve their financial goals with products and services that are designed to exceed their expectations. We have 10 branch locations, including two in Johnson City (310 Sunset Drive & at ETSU/D.P. Culp University Center). www.ttcu.org
