Idaho Central Credit Union is excited to be sponsoring some activities during National Hispanic Heritage Month.  We invite you to stop by and see us at these great events and help us celebrate.

National Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM) is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate the group’s heritage and culture. Hispanic Heritage Week was first proclaimed President Lyndon Johnson in 1968.

During National Hispanic Heritage Month, communities celebrate the achievements and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans with community festivals, government-sponsored activities and educational activities for students.

Documents

Offer electronic applications, documents, statements, and signing, which saves on paper.

Lighting

Install LED lights for ATMs, night drops, new facilities, and when upgrading existing facilities.

Energy

Control power for best usage with Variable Frequency & Adjustable Speed Drives (VFDs) and high-efficiency HVAC systems. Install high value insulation in buildings and use roofs that reflect heat when possible.

Water

Prevent off-site runoff and responsibly manage storm water management during and after construction.

Recycle

Donate old electronic equipment and computers to local schools and organizations. Use recyclable materials and recycled flooring in construction where reasonable. Recycle paper, cardboard, and construction waste to extent possible.

As an organization, we continuously focus on energy management and ways to be more green. If you want to live more green, you can find some great ideas from Idaho Power.
