Kansas Credit Unions Give Surprise Gifts
Seventeen Kansas credit unions gave away $23,000 to more than 900 consumers during the third annual “Make A Difference” statewide event last week to promote the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” said the Kansas Credit Union Association.
"We don't do any advance promotion for these events," said Susan Dyer, KCUA communications director. "We feel our efforts have the greatest impact when it's unexpected. We just want to brighten someone's day and hope that those on the receiving end pass it on, so it has a ripple effect in the community."
