In honor of DuPont Goodrich Federal Credit Union’s (DuGood) 50th Anniversary, the City of Orange is declaring Friday, July 27 DuPont Goodrich Federal Credit Union Day.

July 27 marks a huge milestone for DuGood. The credit union first opened its door 50 years ago in the small office of a plant worker at the DuPont Beaumont Chemical Works Plant. Today, it operates out of nine branch locations that serve over 30,000 members in Jefferson, Hardin, Jasper and Orange counties.

DuGood President and CEO Jada Kelley attributes DuGood’s success to the support of the credit union’s members and the community. The credit union believes in the philosophy of “People Helping People” and demonstrates this by giving back. Just last year alone, DuGood gave back over $520,000 in the form of cash incentives, rate discounts, charitable donations and more.

DuGood began their golden anniversary celebration in January and has been partying all year long with giveaways, and special events each month. On July 27, the festivities will continue with an open house at each branch offering refreshments and door prizes.

The credit union will also join with Sour Lake Motor Company (Truckville) to announce the winner of their 50th Anniversary Loan Promotion. The grand prize winner will receive a brand new 2012 truck. Nine remaining finalists will bring home a 50-inch TV, three day cruise, Kemah getaway package or other great prizes.

DuGood’s 50th Anniversary celebration will continue until the end of the year. For more information on their monthly events and giveaways, log on to
