ICU Day Celebrated Across the Dakotas
by DAKCU Communications

Things look a bit different this year with COVID-19, but credit unions in the Dakotas have brought hope to members long before the pandemic and will continue to improve lives far into the future. Here are some of the ways our credit unions celebrated #ICUDay on October 15.

GEM Federal CU (Minot, ND) typically hosts a free lunch for members on ICU Day, but this year, they tried something a little different. A very special five-inch cookie was handed to each member that stopped by the office or used the drive-thru all week long. The logo-adorned cookies generated many big smiles, and a few lucky members will have an additional reason to celebrate as the credit union draws the names for all the door prizes! 

Fort Randall FCU (Wagner, SD) served appreciation sack lunches “To Go” that included a pork loin sandwich, bag of chips, and a homemade cookie or bar from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Vermillion FCU (Vermillion, SD) held a coloring contest with an ICU Day theme, where the first ten kids to return their artwork received a Little Beary stuffed animal. They also handed out free sack lunches “To Go” on Friday, October 16.

Healthcare Plus FCU (Aberdeen, SD) gave away a $50 gift card each day throughout the week. Any member who had a transaction of any kind was eligible for the daily $50 prize.

United Savings CU (Fargo, ND) took this year’s ICU Day theme “Inspiring Hope for a Global Community” a step further by raising money for the local Great Plains Food Bank and the Becker County Food Pantry. The credit union is matching donations (up to $1,000) and is accepting contributions through October 30.

Voyage FCU (Sioux Falls, SD) treated their members to new calendars and a cookie in honor of the day. Plus, their staff all wore special ICU Day t-shirts!

Capital Credit Union staff performed random acts of kindness in each of the communities they serve! They hid 24 $10 Dan’s gift cards at three Dan’s Supermarket locations in Bismarck; delivered patient comfort kits to Bismarck Cancer Center; picked up trash at Custer Park, Sertoma Park and around Capital Credit Union’s Main Office and South Branch parking lots; delivered Sandy's Donuts to officers at the West Fargo Police Department; delivered thank you treat bags to staff at New Salem’s Elm Crest Manor; and delivered thank you treat bags to staff at Hazen's Sakakawea Medical Center.
