As a reminder, the “CU Hero” icons are available to sell during the entire month of April, in conjunction with Youth Month. Funds raised from the CUFD’s Dakota Credit Unions Care Campaign are used to build community awareness of Dakota credit unions through support of children’s charities; community and social impact organizations or projects; financial education and financial literacy programs through the credit union chapter system; and to provide higher education scholarships throughout our service region in the Dakotas. Get the full details here or contact Katie Dressler if you want a supply of “little green men.”
