Poetry and Inspiration

Jeffery H likes to write poems about the things that affect him, and he says being a Member of his first ever credit union affects him. Inspired, he wrote a poem about UFCU, and we’re proud to share what he has to say about us.

Jeffery H explores the library.“I like propagating good news, which includes promoting a business that I feel is worthy, so I endeavor to promote UFCU in this poem. I’ve shared it online and verbally at times. It’s my way of spreading the good news about UFCU.

Most often, I frequent the UFCU Ben White location. It’s a great environment and the employees are always friendly. I am learning more of the employees’ names there, and even if I don’t know some of their names, I know some of their faces. They are always nice and helpful and promptly take care of me. Likewise, when I call a UFCU representative, any issue is remedied with civility, concern, and appreciation for my membership.

I feel I'm investing in UFCU as I use my account to deposit my monthly check, and get money orders to pay my rent, etc. I use a separate card to make online purchases and pay my cell phone bill, so I don’t have to use my regular card information online. In my poem, I mention that I used to have a card that required me to pay a fee for making purchases online. Now I use a UFCU card for online purchases, so I’ve cut out those fees, thanks to an employee who shared details about the card.

I am into conserving energy, so I really appreciate the fact that the Ben White location uses green building principles. Here’s an excerpt from my poem.

UFCU and Credit Unions Are the Best

To join UFCU l'll ask others day to day,
and a friend said with her bank she chose to stay.
My teacher took a UFCU card, as it I proffered, 
and a lady was with UFCU already, a card I offered...

UFCU is a great place to do business and be a Member.”
