Interra Celebrates 90,000 Members!
In celebration of Interra’s 90 years of service this year, we are excited to announce we are now serving 90,000 members!
Grady Yoder became Interra’s 90,000th member when his parents, Fred and Jennifer Yoder, opened a Kids Club account in his name at the New Paris office. Grady funded the account with dollars he earned at the Kosciusko County 4-H Fair auction. “We knew that now was the perfect time for Grady to learn good saving habits,” shared Jennifer Yoder. “We turned to Interra because we trust them.”
In recognition of our 90,000th member, Interra donated $290 dollars into Grady’s Kids Club account and provided him with a whole lot of Interra swag. Additionally, the credit union “cleared the list” and purchased the remaining items on Grady’s teacher’s Amazon Wishlist.
Interra’s CEO, Amy Sink, and the New Paris team, celebrated Grady where he was presented the check that was deposited into his Kids Club. As a football fan, Grady was also able to meet Wawasee High School Warrior football Captain, Chance Flannery, who attended the celebration as well. “These milestone achievements are made possible by our members’ trust and loyalty to the credit union,” stated Amy Sink, Interra CEO. “Interra is honored to celebrate 90,000 members in our 90th year,” she added.
Celebrating International Credit Union Day with Food Drive
Every year, Interra joins more than 57,000 credit unions in 105 countries worldwide to celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day). ICU Day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement and recognizes hard work and the shared member experience.
This year, ICU Day occurs on Thursday, October 20th. The theme is “empower your financial future with a credit union.” The ultimate goal of this theme is to raise awareness about the incredible work that credit unions and additional financial cooperatives are doing around the world to provide members with the opportunity to get engaged and involved in their communities.
To celebrate ICU Day, Interra’s annual Fall Food Drive kicks off the week prior on Thursday, October 13th, and continues through Monday, October 31st. Every Interra branch will be accepting donations. During these challenging times, our local communities are experiencing a significant increase in food pantry attendance. We ask that you please be as generous as you can in order to help others who need the very basic of life’s necessities during this time.¹
What items are needed?
- Non-perishable food items (not expired)
- Proteins - canned beef, peanut butter, etc.
- Household supplies and paper products
- Personal care items - adult and baby
Where will your donations go?
Donations will go to food pantries selected at our 16 branches throughout Interra’s footprint.
The cooperative spirit, a cornerstone of credit unions, is exemplified with the partnership of the credit union and our members in service initiatives, such as the Fall Food Drive. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
¹Must be packaged goods with a nonexpired date. The credit union reserves the right to reject and/or limit any donations outside of the project’s spirit and intent, at its discretion.
