(Sleepy Eye, MN – October 11, 2017) – SouthPoint Financial Credit Union closed branch lobbies on Columbus Day and sent over 70 employees out to participate in the first annual CU Forward Day.
SouthPoint employees participated in a variety of projects throughout the day in Sleepy Eye, Springfield, New Ulm, St. Peter, Mankato, and Hutchinson. Projects included painting houses and churches, landscaping, cooking for assisted living residents, building a playground, reading to kids, paying for people’s purchases, and other random acts of kindness.
CU Forward day is coordinated by the Minnesota Credit Union Network, the state trade association for Minnesota’s credit unions.
“As not for profit financial institutions, Minnesota’s credit unions work every day to improve their members’ financial lives,” said Minnesota Credit Union Network President & CEO Mark Cummins. “The collaborative effort on CU Forward Day is a perfect example of credit unions fulfilling their ‘people helping people’ philosophy.”
