News Blog Category - News Via Credit Union and Marion Community Schools operate a cooperative educational program, a Student Operated Branch. The mission of the cooperative is to help students learn about money and to establish money management skills.

The Student Operated Branch at Allen is open every Friday morning prior to school and accepts deposits only. As an incentive to save at their school, each time a student makes a deposit their name is placed into a weekly and monthly drawing.

During October, students who make a deposit can spin the prize wheel for school supplies!

If you would like for your child to start saving at the Allen Student Branch, please complete a permission slip and return it along with their initial deposit. Permission slips will be sent home but are also available in the school office.
