Christmas Hero Recap

We reached out to our members and
community and asked them to nominate a hero to receive a Christmas dinner from us! The definition of hero was open ended because a hero can be anyone.

With the help and support of our members, WV Central continues to be financially sound. Well positioned to serve our members in 2018 and beyond in the manner befitting our wonderful members.
Financial strength is often how companies spell success. At WV Central that is just one of the tests that we feel must be considered. We also place high importance on helping our members and our communities!
In 2017, officials and staff volunteered well over 1,000 hours to charities and groups as part of our "WVCFCU MOVement". WV Central, while not required to, donated $90,000 to charities, schools, teachers, sports teams, Veterans and other worthy organizations over the last year!
One of the overriding philosophies of a credit union is living by the principle of "People Helping People"! Officials and staff of WV Central also sees tremendous value in a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson - " The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year for your credit union. Many exciting announcements are on their way and I think that members will be very pleased!
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Supervisory Committee and staff, we wish you a happy and prosperous 2018!
