Guess what! We are back! The Danville Chapter of Credit Unions has banded together to go out into our community in November and December to do random acts of kindness and make a difference in Danville! Because that is what Credit Unions were chartered to do... Help people! Watch here for updates!
Meet Bob and Nancy Partin. They were picked out of the hat to be the recipients of our $2,000.00 loan pay down promotion that was announced at Danville Bell's Grand Opening October19th. They now owe $2,000.00 less than they did a few days ago. Congratulations Bob and Nancy. Another People Helping People moment in time!
We haven't posted anything in a while but Danville Bell Credit Union is still in the business of helping regular people with low interest loans, personal face to face loan decisions, Holiday loans, auto loans and of course our new loan special giveaway of $2,000.00. Take any new loan in November and on December first we may select you as the recipient of a $2,000.00 loan pay down. Our team is also participating in Operation Christmas Child and we have a Toys for Tots collection box in our lobby. Come by and see us at 3591 North Vermilion in Danville.
Our people volunteered their time and resources to do random acts of kindness in Danville! This was a time to celebrate our new building and tell everyone that we have great people here! Thanks Steve, Sky, Diana, Ellen, Mark, Erik, Shawn, Ralph and Dan our board members. Tim, Barb, Kristen, Josie, Cindy and Paula our team members for making this happen! People helping people is what we do!
WORRIED ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN? In the spirit of what we do "people helping people" Danville Bell Credit Union is making available to it's members a short term 1% interest loan if the following applies to you. 1. The Government fails to pay you due to a shut down. 2. You are a member with direct deposit of your SSI, military or government paycheck. 3. You agree to pay the loan back immediately when benefits are restored.... Danville Bell is prepared to help you in the event you need this assistance. Call 217-442-6111 for more information. If you are a member of another Credit Union they probably have a plan in place as well. That's what Credit Unions do.
Once in a while God knows just where to put us so we can touch just the right people! This was one of those times. You see this little boy's fish had died and Mom was taking him to replace one because that was what they could afford. We "just happened" to be there and were able to replace both his fish and make a big difference for a little boy.
The invitation is out there to come celebrate with us Saturday the 19th of October at noon. We will introduce you to the volunteers who came up with our campaign and those who have been out there making a difference with us. We will also be celebrating the Grand Opening of a brand new building and a new era for Danville Bell Credit Union. You see the idea for People Helping People originates from the Credit Union philosophy. We decided to put hands and feet to that mantra... and go out and make a difference without any expectation of anything in return other those great smiles and a change in how people in Danville see and treat each other. We think a better community is a better place for us to work and live. And we think a not for profit Credit Union really is in the business of helping people not profiting from them! Join us if you can at 3591 N Vermilion in Danville on Saturday, October 19th, 2013 from noon to three to meet our volunteers, the staff and board of Danville Bell CU and celebrate with us. See you there!
