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 CU informs: Alyssa Guillory wins YP Representative of the Year

Alyssa.jpgOriginally posted on the Cornerstone Leaguer

Unity One Credit Union in Fort Worth has a new award winner on staff! Director of Community and Public Relations Alyssa Guillory was recognized as the Young Professional (YP) Representative of the Year at Cornerstone Credit Union League's recent YP Conference in Dallas.

The purpose of the YP Representative of the Year award is to recognize individuals age 40 and younger who have demonstrated leadership and a passion for making a difference in the credit union movement and who have engaged in the credit union movement as a YP representative of their credit union.

Kathy Jones, North Tarrant branch manager at the $228 million credit union, said in her nomination of Guillory that she's seen first-hand how much pride Guillory takes in serving the credit union and the community.

"It is a personal passion of hers, and she has worked tirelessly to provide education opportunities to teachers and students that may not have been otherwise available," Jones said. "This year to date, Alyssa has spent over 50 hours, including nights and weekends, teaching over 500 area students in grades K-12."

Guillory started in the credit union industry when she was 20 years old—a junior in college with little knowledge about credit unions. But, Guillory said, she spent the next few years "learning the powerful impacts credit unions make in the lives of their members. It was during those years that I learned not only about the importance of return on marketing investment, but the intangible ROI you receive when helping a member fulfill their dreams. Seeing first-hand how a simple 'yes' or a little financial nudge could help change a member’s life forever changed mine."

In her current role as the director of community and public relations at Unity One, Guillory can put to work her nine years of technical industry knowledge along with her passion for helping others through community outreach. Some of her other career highlights with Unity One include:

• Organized the largest Random Act of Kindness event in company history, with an attendance of more than 1,500 residents, and
• Organized community school supply giveaway affecting over 400 children living in impoverished areas.

Cornerstone Credit Union League SVP Credit Union Relations said of Guillory, "We at Cornerstone are thrilled with the talented young professionals we are seeing in credit unions today. Alyssa Guillory is an excellent representative of the leadership her generation has to offer, and we expect great things from her in the future. I offer my sincere congratulations to this rising credit union star."

Unity One CU informs: Kick off a healthy new school year with these tips!

WH_Back_to_School_2016.jpgAs summer winds down, many families are gearing up for the start of a new school year. Here are a few tips from our friends at the BlueZones Project to encourage students to get moving and put their brains in gear. 

Help students downshift from the summer to the school year by establishing consistent bedtimes and routines.

Make time to discuss their homework, school activities and any issues they have each day. 

Limit use of their electronic devices in their bedrooms. Excessive screentime has been
shown to make it harder to get a good night's rest.

Fill the refrigerator with water and limit the sugary drinks.

Plan healthy meals in advance, including setting out fruit and vegetables in places children
can easily access. 

You can also help your children get on the right financial path early by opening up a youth savings account in their name. Contact us for more information!
