Our credit union was chartered in 1951 when a group of 7 employees from Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company each contributed $5 and created Family Savings Credit Union. What started as a place for Goodyear employees and their family members to save and get small loans for common things such as refrigerators and vehicles, has now become a large credit union offering consumer products, business services and more to its members. They truly demonstrate a family atmosphere for their members and give back to the community supporting many financial education initiatives and charities throughout northeast Alabama and northwest Georgia.
