Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union Purchases Building in Getzville to be its First Erie County Branch Location
Lockport, NY – The Board of Directors, and the entire team at Cornerstone Community FCU, is pleased to announce that on Monday, August 23rd it closed on what will be its newest branch location, and first in Erie County, 315 Stahl Road in Getzville.
With an anticipated October opening, this new branch becomes the sixth location for Cornerstone Community FCU, and the very first physical location in Erie County. Securing the Getzville location came out of a desire to expand their 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.
Chief Executive Officer, Eric M. Hepkins, expresses his enthusiasm saying, “With over 46,000 members and growing, we have never lost sight of what is important – taking care of people through building trust. We welcome individuals who live, work, worship, volunteer, or go to school in Erie and Niagara County, and have built several dynamic lending and financial products and services to meet the current challenges facing individuals and business owners today.”
In addition to providing solid personalized service for its members, Cornerstone Community FCU builds on its philanthropic goal of supporting community nonprofits through volunteering, fundraising, and sponsorships throughout both Niagara and Erie County. With a branch in the Amherst area, Cornerstone Community FCU can now support Western New York small businesses with its robust Business Lending Program, and looks forward to building trusting partnerships with local businesses.
David Nemi, Chairman of the Board of Directors, comments on this exciting milestone; “With the restart of schools, businesses, and community activities, this is the perfect time to introduce the membership benefits of joining Cornerstone Community FCU. The opening of our first physical branch in Erie County enables us to welcome new faces and make connections that can last a lifetime.”
