Central New York Credit Unions, Home HeadQuarters Landscape City Home
Syracuse, NY On Thursday, October 18, 2007, a coalition of Central New York Credit Unions, including Cooperative Federal, landscaped a home in Syracuses Eastside neighborhood to commemorate International Credit Union Day. The building is home to an extended family of refugees saving up to purchase the house, which is currently managed by Home HeadQuarters, Inc.
Syracuse, NY --- This October, Cooperative Federal reaches a milestone as it celebrates its 25th year working for social and economic justice in Syracuse. The celebration culminated with an Anniversary celebration held at May Memorial on Friday evening, October 5, 2007. Nearly 200 members, community leaders, and local politicians participated in the event which featured dinner, dancing, and impromptu testimonials from people whose lives have been touched by the credit union.

In early July, Certegy Check Services, Inc. sent a letter to roughly 2.3 million people whose information was wrongfully sold to marketing organizations by a Certegy employee.
Some members of our Credit Union are among those who received this letter. We are working with Certegy to obtain a list of our members whose information was compromised, so we can provide:
