Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union Celebrates Polish Heritage Month Throughout October

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – The annual Gen. Pulaski Day Parade along Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue on October 1 serves to kick-off National Polish Heritage Month every October. This year, the 80th edition of the colorful and culturally-rich parade was sponsored by the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union (PSFCU) for the 30th consecutive year.

As the event’s main sponsor, PSFCU’s lead float featured an impressive contingent of credit union representatives and special guests, including J. Mark McWatters, chairman of the board of the National Credit Union Administration, and Michael Fryzel, former chairman of the NCUA, and the first Polish-American to hold that organization’s top post.

By far the largest Polish financial institution outside of Poland, PSFCU is the largest ethnic credit union in the U.S. with more than $1.8 billion in assets. It offers carefully tailored financial products and services to its 125,000+ members throughout the country, mainly through its 17 branches in three states (New York, New Jersey and Illinois). Long known for its commitment to the communities it serves, the credit union proudly sponsors and supports countless Polish-American organizations, schools, churches and cultural events that all help make local neighborhoods succeed and thrive.
