Community Cornerstone Recipient
Congratulations to this month’s Community Cornerstone winner, Shawn Highway!
Shawn was nominated for this community award for his passion and commitment to our community. Shawn is a local HVAC tech and teacher at BOCES, but what truly makes Shawn special is his advocacy for the underserved. During his off hours, he regularly provides heating and air conditioning to his neighbors and those in need. In addition, Shawn volunteers his time throughout the holiday season by providing meals to members of our community and playing Santa – a passion of his to give families in need a memorable holiday season. Whether money, food, or any other necessity, Shawn is always the first to step in and help – never saying no to the opportunity to serve others. On behalf of Shawn’s community advocacy and support, he will receive a $100 gift card to BriteSmith Brewing along with a $500 donation to his favorite cause, Hope Before Heaven, proudly donated by Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union.
In partnership with Country 106.5 WYRK and BriteSmith Brewing, we are seeking nominations to reward an individual’s passion for our community. Our monthly winner will receive a $500 donation to the winner’s favorite cause, and a $100 dinner gift certificate to celebrate! Think of a worthy recipient and nominate them for the Community Cornerstone!
Amherst Location Now Open!
We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new Amherst branch located at 315 Stahl Road in Getzville. This branch becomes the sixth location for Cornerstone and the very first physical location in Erie County. Securing the Getzville location came out of a desire to expand our field of membership brought about by COVID-19. During the height of the pandemic, Cornerstone Community FCU served WNY small businesses by participating in the PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) disbursing approximately $8.5 million dollars and 144 loans to area business owners.
We are looking forward to supporting small businesses with our robust Business Lending Program in addition to fulfilling our philanthropic goal of supporting community nonprofits through volunteering, fundraising, and sponsorships.
If you live, work, worship, volunteer, or attend school in either Niagara or Erie County, you are eligible for a Cornerstone Membership.
