Random Acts of Kindness Day
We celebrated Random Acts of Kindness Day (Feb. 17) by spreading some kindness to five of our Select Employee Group employees.
We asked our partner companies to nominate employees, then we randomly drew 5 winners from 90 entries!
At each company, we surprised the winning employee with a $50 gift card and a candy bouquet:
- Katie W. from Meadows Elementary School
- Kinyarie D. from Quality Living
- Beth M. from Ralston High School
- Connie M. from Mueller Recreational Products
- Angie R. from B&R Stores
120th Street ITM coming soon!
April 21 – Save the Date!
Due to a decrease in the number of members at our 120th and I Street branch, we closed our branch lobby permanently. Our drive-thru remains open as usual, Monday-Friday from 8 am to 6 pm, and Saturday from 9 am to 12:30 pm.
Coming soon, our new ITM (Interactive Teller Machine) will open in the 120th and I Street parking lot.show more
The ITM is like an ATM and a Drive-thru Teller all in one! Just touch the screen and speak with an FNCU Teller, and do the majority of transactions you can do in a traditional drive-thru. You can ask them questions, perform account maintenance, or conduct transactions the same as you would with a teller at a branch. Our ITM tellers are FNCU employees, located at our main branch.
In early Fall of 2022, we will close the drive-thru and all future transactions will be serviced by the ITM, another branch location, or by using our electronic services.show less
