First Source Goes Blue to Raise Awareness For Autism
April 2nd, 2014
First Source Federal Credit Union will be going blue to raise awareness for Autism on Wednesday, April 2nd, World Autism Awareness Day. First Source is joining the autism awareness movement to, “Light It Up Blue.” In celebration, the branches will be decorated in blue and employees will be wearing blue to support the cause. As well, the First Source New Hartford Branch exterior will be lit up with blue lights.
Autism prevalence has increased 78% in 5 years and unfortunately continues to rise according to the Autism Speaks organization.
“At First Source Federal Credit Union we are committed to raising awareness of the devastating effects the diagnosis of autism has on an individual and their family,” said Mike Parsons, President and CEO of First Source. “With the rate of occurrence of autism now at 1 in 50 children, it is of paramount importance to not only find the causes but also support the programs and services that support local individuals and families dealing with autism.”

I heard about the low financing available for home equities, which is what sparked my interest originally a couple years ago. I had already had a home equity loan with First Source a few years back.
The woman who I had been dealing with was no longer there, so I was introduced to Pete. He was such pleasure to work with, extremely helpful to me and my husband. I asked many questions and Pete was very, very knowledgeable. And if he didn’t know, he found the answer within minutes.
I was attracted to First Source as their rates were very low. Everyone from the person at the front desk, to the tellers, to the loan specialist were so very friendly, always willing to help with a smile on their face. They have saved me a lot of money with the low rate that I am getting for my home equity loan. The process was extremely easy, I only needed to give them a few papers and Pete did all the rest.
I have recommended my friends to First Source and to specifically ask for Pete as he is very easy going and so intelligent. I am the type of person that is not comfortable talking about money with people I don’t know. Pete made it so easy. I had dealt with other credit unions in the past for years and I am happy to say I will be staying here. I am very happy to be a member of First Source Federal Credit Union.
Whenever I had called Pete with a question, he always returned my call very quickly if he was busy helping someone else, and no question of mine was ever silly to him. He made my experience very smooth and comfortable. I will now be opening a savings account for my children. Excellent service, very helpful and caring employees.
