Pelican State Credit Union Gives Back to Monroe Community with Crawfish and Financial Education

MONROE, LOUISIANA –To celebrate Pelican State Credit Union’s newest branch at 2880 Louisville Avenue in Monroe, Louisiana, the credit union hosted a ribbon cutting and gave away 500 pounds of free crawfish to its members on Thursday, March 30.

The first 200 Pelican members to join in the grand opening celebration received a Pelican crawfish tray filled with crawfish, corn, potatoes and a koozie. Plus, all branch visitors could enter to win $100!

The credit union also hosted a free Financial Literacy Workshop for the Monroe community on Wednesday, March 29 at the Ouachita Parish Main Library. Pelican’s Nationally Certified Credit Counselor, Heike Reagan, broke down credit reports and scores for over 40 Monroe residents.

The credit union also gave away door prizes and a free jambalaya dinner to all workshop attendees. Credit union membership was not required to attend the workshop, receive dinner or win prizes.

It pays to be a member of Pelican! Each year, the credit union gives away thousands in cash and prizes to members across the state. Members also benefit from free one-on-one credit counseling and a variety of convenient products and services.

Pelican has two locations to serve the Monroe community: 2880 Louisville Avenue and 4864 Jackson Street inside of University Health Conway. For information about becoming a Pelican member, please contact Monroe Branch Manager J T Thomas at 318-361-0864 or visit pelicanstatecu.com/join.
