CUNA Highlights for Congress How CUs Meet Members’ Holiday Financial Needs

This holiday season, the average consumer will spend more than $1,000 on gifts and related expenses and credit unions are there to ensure consumers maintain their financial health, CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan wrote to all 535 Congressional offices Tuesday.

Donovan’s latest communication is part of CUNA’s ongoing outreach to all Congressional offices reminding them that continued support of credit unions allows them to continue service to 115 million Americans.

“With programs like budgeting workshops, interest-free loan deferrals, and higher interest savings accounts, credit unions in your community are investing time, staff, and capital to keep your constituents in the green this winter, ensuring a happy holiday season for all,” Donovan wrote.

“By supporting credit unions' not-for profit mission, you're sustaining the financial wellness of your community and the 115 million Americans across the country who have chosen to make credit unions their financial partner,” he added.
