80th Anniversary Celebration of Volunteers

As part of our 80th Anniversary Celebration, we wanted to thank our past and present Volunteers who have served on the Board of Directors or committees.  Thanks to all who have helped steer Emporia State Federal Credit Union through these first 80 years!

We hosted the dinner at the Clint Bowyer Community Building.  The meal was catered by Bobby D's and the Olpe Chicken House.  Thank you to Tim Miller and Steve Vaughn who served as our bartenders for the evening!  

After the social time and dinner, CEO, Angie Miller, presided over the program.  Each Volunteer and staff member was called to the front to receive certificates presented by Tana Hoffman, from the Heartland Credit Union Association and ESFCU Assistant Manager, Josh Hubler.  Along with the certificate presentations, CEO Miller talked about the accomplishments at the credit union during the past decades.

We hope all of the volunteers and staff members had a memorable evening!

Congratulations to all of the ESU employees that were recognized for 10, 20, 30 and even 40 years of service to Emporia State University!

Emporia State University Employee Appreciation Day

Over 250 ESU employees stopped by the Skyline Room in the ESU Memorial Union.  They could choose a Suitcase for Cash (where they could win up to $50); play Trivia to win $1 (or $2 if they were brave enough to sing!); play Tailgate Toss to win a Gold Dollar; and enjoy cookies, brownies, popcorn and raspberry lemonade!

If the employee was already a member of ESFCU, they could bring in a new member to join and both got to Spin the Wheel for Cash!

We had a wonderful time being with ESU employees and celebrating how great they are!

 

 

Congratulations to Bryan Sailer and Susan Menke who won the Apple Watch and the Flat Out Fun iPad!

 

Thanks to all who dropped by!  We really do appreciate you!

January 2017

On January 25th, ESFCU CEO Angie Miller and Assistant Manager, Josh Hubler presented a check for $1,180.01 to Lee Alderman, Director of the Abundant Harvest Food Kitchen.

This check represents monies donated by our members during the Skip-a-Payment program that we have offered for the last 7 years. With each loan payment skipped, members are asked to donate to those in need in our community.  "Skipping a (consumer) loan payment in November or December is a great way for our members to have extra cash for the holidays and, in turn, give to someone else." said Angie.

 This year, the Board of Directors chose to give the monies to Abundant Harvest and Emporia State University Corky's Cupboard food pantry. 

On January 26th, Angie and Josh went to Corky's Cupboard on the Emporia State University campus to give them their check for $1,000.00.

"Josh and I were honored to present checks to both of these worthy organizations on behalf of our credit union membership."

Abundant Harvest served over 7,000 people in 2016.  They provided boxes of food; clothing and household goods as well as hot evening meals- all at no cost to those in need.  The Abundant Harvest kitchen is staffed by three part time paid employees and over 170 volunteers at the 1028 Whittier street location.  For more information about donating and volunteering for Abundant Harvest, contact Lee Alderman at 342-7439.  

Corky’s Cupboard campus food pantry provides temporary food assistance to Emporia State students. Corky’s cupboard, which opened in the spring of 2014 is available to all currently enrolled ESU students. It is open on Mondays and Thursdays from 12 to 5 p.m. while classes are in session.
