Unity One Informs: Credit union partners with AKA

Not only did Unity One Credit Union protect its community members from fraud and preserve the environment with a FREE shred IMG_6449.jpgservice this past Saturday, but the credit union also encouraged them to vote through a collaboration with the Fort Worth chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc, Beta Mu Omega. The service-oriented organization is non-partisan; there were NO endorsements of candidates, just roadmaps on how to register to vote.

More about Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was founded on the campus of Howard University in 1908. The noble idea of Alpha Kappa Alpha was conceived by Ethel Hedgemen Lyle, who believed the sorority would serve "as an instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life by providing mental stimulation through interaction with friends and associates." There were nine original founders who took advantage of their privileged position as college-trained women of color in order to make their college experiences as meaningful and productive as possible.Today the influence and concerns of Alpha Kappa Alpha extend beyond the college campus. Throughout the years, the sorority has grown IMG_6444-1.jpgand remained socially relevant and dedicated to uplifting the communities it serves as well as itself. After 107 year of service, the singular determination of Alpha Kappa Alpha continues to be “service to all mankind” reverberates throughout the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean, with a membership of nearly 700,000 collegiate members and alumnae.  

More about Beta Mu Omega

Beta Mu Omega, the dream of thirteen graduate members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. residing in Fort Worth, Texas was chartered on May 2, 1936 at the home of Ethel Brackeen Long.  For nearly 80 years, the chapter has responded to the needs of the Fort Worth community and implemented the programs of the national body. Its membership is made of women who have shaped the history of Fort Worth and served as leaders within the national organization.

Unity One CU Informs: Put Members First!

I’m sure many of you have heard about the scandal at Wells Fargo, one of the nation’s largest banks. Wells Fargo was fined $185 million, and over 5,000 employees were fired after it was discovered that bank employees had opened as many as two million unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts in order to meet sales quotas. This is just another example of the pattern of bad behavior by many big banks in their continual pursuit of boosting profits. Other banks have received hefty fines or paid huge legal settlements for questionable mortgage practices. Most have eliminated free checking and raised fees across the board.Gary_Williams_reading.jpg

Big banks are beholden to shareholders and are driven by the desire to increase profits. Unity One Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative. As such, we put people before profits. Our members’ financial well-being is our only goal, and we strive to provide you the best value in financial services. As a cooperative, “profits” are returned to our members in the form of lower loan rates, higher deposit rates, lower fees (in fact most of our services are free!) and by investing in expanded services to meet our members’ needs.

As a financial cooperative, we operate on the philosophy of people helping people. We exist only to serve our members – not some distant, faceless shareholders. As a member, you are a part-owner of Unity One Credit Union, and our sole focus is on doing the right thing for our members. You have made a wise choice by being a member of Unity One Credit Union.

You can rest assured that we work hard every day to earn your trust and to provide you the best value in financial services. We never forget that we exist for you and we are dedicated to providing you a better banking experience. Thank you for your membership!

Gear_Up_4_School_2016.jpg

Unity One Credit Union held its tenth annual “Gear Up 4 School” supply giveaway on Saturday, August 20, from 8 – 10a.m at its Stockyards branch located at 2625 N. Main St. (across the street from Billy Bob’s parking lot and next to Los Vaqueros). The event, created to be a resource for families, gifts children with school mandated supplies while exposing them to small businesses and organizations in the community. 

Despite the bad weather, the credit union distributed over 400 drawstring backpacks containing items such as: pencils, notebooks, crayons and scissors. Supplies were distributed first come first served, and the students receiving the supplies had to be present.   

“This event is one of the most powerful ways we give back to the communities we serve each year. We are glad to be able to help so many children get the supplies they need to excel in school,” said Gary Williams, president. 

In addition to the backpack and supplies, attendees enjoyed free food from Dickey’s BBQ, a dance off between Max, Unity One’s mascot, and the Chuck E. Cheese mouse,  and visited booths manned by local businesses and organizations such as: the Fort Worth Library, LULAC and the Caucas de North Texas.

Unity One Informs: Maren Morris makes appeareance at UO branch opening 11 years ago

Unity One Credit Union's North Tarrant branch in Fort Worth's grand opening celebration was held August 19, 2005.  In addition to the traditional ribbon cutting, we had a flag-raising ceremony by the local cub scouts, appearances by Fossil Ridge High School cheerleaders and football team and an evening concert featuring a little known, local girl by the name of Maren Morris.

 

If you aren't a follower of country music, here's (as Paul Harvey of radio station WBAP would say) "the rest of the story," according to Rolling Stone magazine.

During last year's Country Music Awards (CMAs), Maren Morris was an unknown. It was two months before the release of her breakout single, My Church, and her debut album Hero would not arrive until June 2016. Fast forward to now, and Morris is tied with Chris Stapleton and Eric Church as the leading nominees at the 50th annual CMAs. It's startling to the 26-year-old Texas native.

"I was sitting across the street from the CMAs last year at a restaurant watching the show on TV and never thinking I would be sitting there the next year," said Morris.

Along with Song of the Year, for My Church, and an Album of the Year nod for Hero, Morris competes in Single of the Year (My Church), Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist. She admits she anticipated perhaps one nomination, but the strong showing was overwhelming.

"To have five [nominations] and one of them be Album of the Year and another Song of the Year, it is such validation," said Morris.
