The SOCU Difference

You may have noticed that we here at SOCU are a little different than other banks or credit unions. We take all our business serious but sometimes we like to go casual!

Here's how it works...

  1. All SOCU employees are given the opportunity to dress casual any day of the week as long as they 'pay' for their casual day of dress.
  2. During the month each 'pay' is placed into a special account.
  3. All funds collected in that account for the month are donated to a charity or a local cause!

So when you see someone dressed casual at SOCU it means they donated to charity and they get to enjoy a comfortable day at work in casual attire.
