A Faithful Member nominating Firestone Community FCU said “I have been a member with Firestone Credit Union for a very long time. They had a lot to deal with after the hurricane losing two offices, taking care of their members and employees but never forgotten their members.

“I feel they are very strong at this point, great employees, very loyal to their members, friendly, always ready to help when I need a value on a car, just a general question with my IRA or CD or when I needed a notary.

“They started a new Firefly program for our younger children and I feel that would be great for them to start learning how to save money. They are more involved in their community now than ever.

“I will always be a proud member of Firestone Credit Union, along with my children and grandchildren who are members too. Although I do a lot of business between Bridge City and Orange office, I am sure Mauriceville has a great staff too. Best wishes to the Board Members, Janna and her staff for a productive year.”

Janna Achord from Firestone Community FCU thanks her nominator, and comments that “Firestone Community FCU’s Board of Directors and staff are committed to providing superior service to our membership and we appreciate their loyalty to us. We have focused our efforts over the last year in improving our product offerings and delivery of services. We are proud to announce that we have a newly designed website that allows our members to apply for a loan and obtain approval online, the site also offers online banking, bill pay, financial planning, links to discounted theme park tickets and much more. We encourage everyone to check it out at www.firestonecommunity.coop.

“Another service that we have added is an onsite financial planner. Clovis Van Houten has his office in the Orange branch, located at 2101 MacArthur Drive, but can travel to any of our branches for personal consultations upon request. In today’s tough economical times, Firestone Community FCU is here to provide our community with low cost financial services, low rates on loans, safe investments, and guidance for a strong financial future.
