Tropical Financial Credit Union President/CEO Rich Helber joined us on the show to share why his credit union gave its employees $85,000 during the COVID-19 crisis. Rich explains that Tropical Financial wanted to do something special for its staff to celebrate the credit union's 85th anniversary serving its members.
Rich and the credit union's Board knew the surrounding communities Tropical Financial serves were hurting due to the coronavirus pandemic. So how about an economic boost to the local economy?
Since it was the credit union's 85th anniversary, $85,000 was an ideal amount to give to staff in the form of $500 gift cards. And I'll let Rich take if from here.
Another wonderful story in truly amazing industry. Check it out and let us know your thoughts -- as well as what your credit union is doing to support local economies.
