Blood Drive & Shred Day

Blood Drive benefiting ULFCU Employee

Mobile Blood Bank
Friday, September 17th
11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Main Branch Parking Lot

The UL Federal Credit Union will host a blood drive for Member Service Representative, Jalisa, on September 17, 2021, with the help of Our Lady of Lourdes mobile blood bank.

Jalisa suffered major injuries in a car accident caused by an impaired driver in June 2021. Jalisa is expected to make a full recovery with time. A portion of her medical bills will be compensated from donations collected in this drive.

Jalisa joined the UL Federal Credit Union in 2019 as a receptionist, then quickly ascended to the Member Services team. Jalisa is a fast thinker, which makes her a valuable employee to get her job done, but also keeps her co-workers entertained with her witty commentary. She is dedicated to the credit union and has started working from home until she is able to return to the branch full time. Her co-workers have missed her boisterous spirit and are anxious to have her back. Parking spots will be available for visitors. The blood drive is open to the public.
