Spring 2015 - AmeriCU Credit Union
News from AmeriCU Credit Union
AmeriCU is celebrating Credit Union Youth
Month by encouraging children to SAVE!
Throughout April, deposit $50 or more into a new or
existing youth account, and receive a free Moonjar
and Storybook. Moonjars help children learn to
balance saving, spending, and sharing in the ancient
custom of placing hopes and dreams in a jar.
April is also National Child Abuse
Prevention month. So in the spirit of
sharing, for each $50 youth account
deposit, AmeriCU will donate $5 to a local
National Children’s Alliance Child Advocacy Center: The Child Advocacy
Center of Northern New York in Watertown, the Ryan McMahon Child
Advocacy Center in Syracuse, or the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center in
Each child will receive a pinwheel to “plant” in our “Pinwheels for
Prevention Garden”.
