“Hug” is the new mascot for the $314 million First Source FCU in New Hartford, N.Y., so supporting the Stevens-Swan Humane Society of Oneida County was a natural fit. The 32,000-member credit union played a major role in the organization’s 19th annual Wiggle Waggle Walk-a-Thon at New Hartford Town Park, helping the dogs put on the dog by dressing up like “Hug”. The CU volunteers also raised $1,200 of the $42,000 overall the event raised for the local humane society. Food and other supplies also were collected through the month of September at the credit union’s branches in New Hartford, Utica and Herkimer. “We like to get involved in our community as much as possible and especially when the cause is near and dear to our employees. We feel strongly about helping our local Humane Society since they rely on community support for 100% of their funding and because of the loving care they give to more than 3,000 lost, abused and unwanted animals each year,” said Pamela Way, community relations specialist for First Source.
