Create Good. It’s the description for our multifaceted outreach as well as an inspiring call to action. Offering accessible products and services is a significant part of our contribution, but we also play a supportive role. We seek out the financially underserved. Financial education and empowerment are among our goals. Of course, we can’t Create Good without dedicated, talented, good people on our team – people like Pascual Garrido. In addition to what he does in his role at the Credit Union, Pascual dedicates tremendous amounts of time and energy to helping others. Here’s a well-deserved spotlight on Pascual…
