June 18, 2007—Crystal Lake, IL—On Tuesday, May 29th BCU (Baxter Credit Union), a not-for-profit credit union open for membership to all residents and employees in McHenry County, hosted a Mixer for both the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce and the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce at its Crystal Lake Service Center.

The Mixer brought 140 people together to kick off the credit union’s Community Sponsorship Program, a program featuring local organizations each month that contribute to the community, either through charitable work or through support of local youth, education or arts programs. BCU made a monetary contribution to each of the featured organizations and highlighted them with in-branch promotional materials throughout the month.

Another feature of the Community Sponsorship Program is preferred discounts with local businesses made available exclusively for BCU Members. By showing a BCU Card, members will receive valuable discounts with many of their favorite local retailers and service providers.

With over $1.2 Billion in assets, BCU currently serves more than 126,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Formed in 1981 and headquartered in Vernon Hills, Illinois, BCU is a not-for-profit, member-owned credit union known for competitive rates, low fees, and state-of-the-art services. Membership is open to several prestigious companies around the country, as well as anyone who lives or works in the Illinois counties of McHenry, Lake, DuPage, Kane, Cook (north of Rte. 58) and the village of Schaumburg.
