We Appreciate Our Employees

Lori, Anna, Stacey and Laurie pose in their costumes at our Employee appreciation party.

On Sunday, October 26th HiTel FCU celebrated their employee appreciation party in style with a Halloween twist.  Staff gathered for a fun-filled morning with games-galore and a breakfast buffet that filled our bellies.  There was an omelet and waffle bar in addition to the main buffet.   Employees participated in individual and team trivial games including a variety of “minute to win it” games like bite me (bobbing for apples using vampire fangs) and the toilet paper mummy wrap.

All attendees were encouraged to dress up in their best Halloween costumes to liven up the mood – as Halloween is just around the corner.  Everyone was able to capture the day with the Oh Snap photo booth kiosk.  This was a great day to unite everyone together from all our branches.

Our employees will be continuing their Halloween spirit on Friday, so stop by any of our branch locations!

Aloha United Way 2014

HiTel FCU is always active in the community, lending a helping hand to many different organizations.  For the past decade, the credit union has put on a company bake sale in efforts to raise money for Aloha United Way.

 

This year there were many generous donors – fried rice omelet, brownies, strawberry cookies, maple bacon cupcakes and much more scrumptious goodies.  Employees got their fill and it was a great success.

 

In addition, in the past few years, HiTel FCU added a company garage sale to their fundraising efforts.  This year employees brought in a number of donations from ceramic pottery and baby toys to various make up products and home appliances.  All proceeds from both events will go to AUW, and the credit union is donating over $10,500!

Welcome Sheraton Hawaii FCU!

On June 1st, HiTel FCU officially welcomed Sheraton Hawaii FCU to our credit union ‘ohana!  Sheraton Hawaii FCU was formed in 1959 and by merging with us, they will be able to expand services to members.  In addition, our new branch will continue their operations at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel & Resort – and is located on the third floor in the forward annex building.  Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:00pm.

 

School Tools for Hawaii’s Keiki

Casual Day 2014 Recap

On Wednesday June 18th HiTel FCU employees celebrated the United Cerebral Palsy Casual Day in casual attire – Jeans, tennis shoes and the UCPA cotton blue t-shirt.  There were 67 employees that donated to the cause, and it was definitely a treat for them to dress down for such a special occasion.

UCPA of Hawaii is part of a nation wide network that provides educational programs and supports research in cerebral palsy.  The credit union participates in their two biggest events, the other being the Hawaiian Rubber Duckie Race at the McCully Shopping Center.
