WASHINGTON — CUNA employees greeted busy Capitol Hill staffers and others by opening doors with a smile and offering to escort commuters with umbrellas to shield them from the rain Oct. 24.

As part of CUNA’s Little Guy campaign to change the conversation on Capitol Hill, CU Helper Day aimed to be a highly visible and tangible demonstration of credit unions looking out for the Little Guy. Mints with message cards were also distributed at the Capitol South Metro station. The front of the card read: “Lots of things can leave a bad taste in your mouth. Coffee.
