Credit Union West Honors U.S. Veterans and Active Military with Reserved Parking Spaces at Credit Union Branches
In a show of respect and support for U.S. veterans and military members, Credit Union West has established reserved parking spaces at six of its Phoenix-area branches for veterans. This initiative will expand to their Prescott, Prescott Valley and Cottonwood branches in May, and to the new Westgate corporate office and retail-banking branch during the first quarter of 2019.
Signs emblazoned with an American flag, reading “Military Veteran Parking,” designate the spaces which are located close to the front of the branch’s doors. The curbs will be painted blue to further distinguish the honorary spaces.
Arizona is home to seven different military bases and is among the top-15 states for veteran populations. In 2016, there were 515,050 U.S. military veterans living in Arizona, comprising an estimated 10 percent of the state’s adult population. The largest number of veterans currently live in Maricopa County.
“Everyone has neighbors, friends, and family who were in the military, or who are currently active. Expressing appreciation helps build a stronger, more cohesive community for all,” said MacGregor. “This is our way of saying, we appreciate all you have done for us and thank you for your service.”
