Fort Branch is Finally Open!


On Wednesday, July 9th, HiTel FCU opened a new Fort Branch inside of the Downtown Walmart on Fort Street Mall.  Shoppers were eager to see the new two story retail store, and flooded the isles – customers were literally shoulder to shoulder.

A few HiTel FCU employees were set up right on the mall with both 93.9 the Jamz and Island 98.5 giving away a lot of cool things.  The credit union brought their wheel and winners who landed on the one lucky spot received a prize of their choice – a glass cup with a mini Yoko or mini Kalea doll, a shopping cart full of goodies or a HiTel FCU money bag.  There was also a entry box to win a iPad mini and Ni’ihau shell necklaces.

It was only one entry per person, however, anyone who opened a checking account with $100 would get three entries or $500 would get 20 entries.  Winners will be announced all throughout the month of August!

On Thursday July 10th, Pastor John from Hope Chapel blessed our branch to protect and bring good fortune to both the branch and staff.  Fort Branch is our fourth Walmart Branch here on Oahu. Our employees are excited in servicing all your money needs!

Oahu Annual Meeting and Dinner Recap

On Saturday, April 19, 2014 Hawaiian Tel FCU gathered to celebrate their 77th Annual Meeting and Dinner at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  This year’s theme was “Working with you in mind.”

 

“To make our way, we must have firm resolve, persistence, tenacity.  We must gear ourselves to work hard all the way.  We can never let up.”

                        -Ralph Bunche, Nobel Laureate and Diplomat

 

At the meeting, there were over 300 members in attendance to listen on the successful financial condition of 2013.  There have been many things that the credit union has undergone with the value-driven services of Popmoney and mobile banking, to the grand openings of our two newest Walmart branch locations (Mililani and Kunia), to the various community events and much more.  However, we are not going to stop there – HiTel FCU has a lot more in store for 2014.

 

In addition to the financials it was announced that Michael Yee and Deborah Lau Okamura had been selected to fill the vacancies on the Board of Directors.

 

Members were eager to win door prizes, as there were over $3,000 worth of various giveaways.  Lucky attendees were showered with gift cards of various restaurants and stores, hotel stays in Hawaii and California, the grand prize of a trip for two for Vegas and much more!

 

With the meeting concluded, everyone adjourned to the dining room to enjoy an opulent seven-course Chinese dinner while being entranced by the intoxicating voice of Jason Allen. Augie Tulba, our emcee, kept everyone entertained in his usual escapade style between gigs.  The post dinner entertainment was put on by the beach boy band The Dukes of Surf.  The band had everyone shimming in their seats.

 

Mystical Sounds’ mobile disco and light show was the perfect way to cap off a celebratory evening of fun and fellowship.
A big MAHALO to all who attended! Hope to see you all next year!  Post your pictures to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and tag us @hitelfcu and #hitelfcu.  To view more photos, visit our Facebook page!

School Tools 2013

Featured

On Sunday, June 30, 2013, Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union employee’s joined KITV’s staff and volunteers to collect  “School Tools” at Sam’s Club in Pearl Highlands for Hawaii’s keiki’s. Our staff arrived with a van full of donations that our members generously donated to our 7 branches. This year our members and staff came through with bags, boxes, and armload of supplies.

“School Tool” donations were being taken at both town and Pearl City Sam’s Club locations. Together, both locations collected seven pallets of school supplies and over $7,000.00 in monetary donations.   The generous donations received from our generous friends and neighbors in Hawaii, will provide 1,755 low income children with school supply kits for this upcoming 2013 – 2014 year!

Our mascots, Yoko and Kalea, also made a special appearance to greet club members and their families!  Balloons and candy were given to the donors to thank them for their generosity.  Both Yoko and Kalea enjoyed taking pictures with the keiki and receiving warm hugs.

Again, we would like to thank everyone who donated, because “you” have made a difference in the lives of Hawaii’s keiki!
