JACKSON, Mich. — If the membership campaign works, by the end of the year not too many people in the Jackson area won't be aware of American 1 Credit Union.

American 1 launched the campaign in February, and before mid-year almost 2,700 new members had joined. Those newcomers have brought in an average of $1,009 each in deposits and a total of $3.6 million in loans. The goal is 7,000 new members by the end of the year.

The field of membership covers anyone who has joined Jackson Co-op, organized as a cooperative grocery store after World War II by employees of a local Goodyear plant. Over the years other services ranging from insurance to rental cars have been added, including the credit union.
