FSU Credit Union celebrates ribbon cutting for new branch
Representatives and dignitaries from the Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce recently joined FSU Credit Union leadership, staff, and partners for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new, expanded branch location of FSU Credit Union in Wakulla County.
The FSU Credit Union Crawfordville branch previously operated out of shared space with the Wakulla Insurance Agency. The new 2,200-square-foot building is solely owned and operated by FSU Credit Union.
Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, FSU Credit Union presented a donation to the Wakulla 4-H Club, which was a 2018 recipient of the FSU Credit Union Borrow 4 less – Give Back More program. Through the FSU Credit Union Borrow 4 Less – Give Back More program, FSU Credit Union donates $10 for every qualified new and refinanced auto loan to a designated nonprofit organization each month.
