Press release submitted by IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union

GALESBURG, IL —IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union's second location in Galesburg, 404 West Carl Sandburg Drive, is officially open for business.

The 4,900-square-foot building, located near Lowe's, features drive-up lanes, a 24-hour ATM and a large community room.

The non-traditional building, designed by Clayco, Inc., features teller stations and self-serve stations, in contrast to traditional teller windows. "The teller stations allow for greater interaction between members and staff, helping build member relations," says Christine Denisar, IHMVCU Galesburg branch manager.

"The self-serve stations reduce wait times for members and can handle basic transactions, check cashing and withdrawals, similar to express lanes at other retail facilities," continues Denisar.

The first Galesburg branch opened in Nov. 2007 and will continue to operate as a drive-up only facility at 1215 Monmouth Blvd. The new branch will be a full-service credit union, with lobby hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

"Drive for Change"

To celebrate the new branch, IHMVCU is launching the "Drive for Change" to support Operation Rebuild-Achievement, a $110 million, 20-year initiative to improve learning conditions for students at the Galesburg Community Unit School District #205.

"We make a commitment to every community we serve, and we felt the best use of our donation dollars would be to support an initiative that impacts so many people," says Dennis Hall, President and CEO of IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union. "This construction project is unique in that it will touch 11 schools in the district."

To participate, the community is invited to bring in their change to the new location at 404 West Carl Sandburg Drive, between July 10 and August 9. IHMVCU will match the total community donation, up to $10,000 in unrestricted funds for Operation Rebuild-Achievement.

Community Open House

In addition to "Drive for Change", the community is also invited to a Community Open House from 9 a.m. – noon on Sat., July 21. Refreshments and kids' activities will be provided. Additional parking will be available across the street at Lowe's.

IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union has 16 locations with four branches in Western Illinois, including in Abingdon and Monmouth. It's the largest credit union in the region and the sixth largest in the state. IHMVCU has more than $840 million in assets and more than 100,000 members.
