International Credit Union Day (ICU DAY) 2015

ICU Day 2015


Houston – On Oct. 15, 2015, credit union members around the world will celebrate International Credit Union Day® (ICU Day), an annual event to commemorate the credit union movement’s impact and achievements. In honor of this special day, PrimeWay Federal Credit Union invites its members and the entire community to celebrate at their preferred branch with complimentary refreshments and giveaways (varies by branch) on Thursday, October 15, 2015. PrimeWay will also host a clothing donation drive at all nine Houston branches!

The credit union will be accepting new or gently used men's and women's business attire for Career and Recovery Resources, Inc., October 5 to October 16, 2015. ‪ICU Day allows credit unions the opportunity to remind members of what it means to belong to a credit union, show appreciation and give back to the communities they serve.

Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that provide an effective and viable alternative to for-profit financial institutions for over 217 million members in 105 countries worldwide. Worldwide, 57,000 credit unions exist to serve their members, providing a safe place to save money and access affordable loans. For over 75 years, PrimeWay has been in the Houston community helping people by providing superior financial services.

International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October since 1948. Each year, the international event affords the opportunity to remember credit unions’ proud history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union difference. This year’s theme, “People Helping People®,” embraces the longstanding credit union philosophy.

Credit unions are recognized as a force for positive economic and social change and have provided significant value in both developed and emerging nations. International Credit Union Day is sponsored by World Council of Credit Unions, the international trade association and development agency for credit unions, as well as numerous national credit union trade associations and federations around the world.

On Oct. 15, credit unions from around the world will join forces to celebrate the day with membership drives, contests and fundraisers to help out their local communities. Credit unions will share their activities with the global community on social media using #ICUDay. For more information about PrimeWay’s events, visit
