The $234 million Pelican State Credit Union gave away 531 free sno-cones to every person who visited the Alexandria, La., Sno-Shack from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 20. Data reported on the weather channel said the temperature in Alexandria reached 90 degrees on that day.
According to a credit union release, the Sno-Shack Takeover demonstrated Pelican’s mission to communicate the giving spirit of the credit union to its members and the communities it serves.
In addition to the Sno-Shack Takeover, this year Pelican issued a special member dividend of $350,000, raffled off thousands of dollars in cash and prizes during Member Appreciation Week, gave away $3,300 in cash in money booths at events and awarded $6,000 in scholarship awards to graduating high school seniors.
