Baltimore, Md. – MECU Credit Union celebrated the grand opening of its new Randallstown branch located at 8700D Liberty Road on Saturday, October 12. The Randallstown branch is MECU Credit Union’s tenth branch and allows the credit union to serve its membership and expand its reach and convenience in Baltimore County.
To commemorate the new branch, MECU Credit Union hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony and community celebration event with staff members, local officials, Randallstown community leaders, and members. Local officials at the event included Baltimore County Councilman Julian Jones, Jr., State House Speaker Adrienne Jones, Delegate Benjamin Brooks, and Mary Clay from Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski’s Office of Community Engagement.
“We are excited to open our newest branch to better serve members in Baltimore County,” said John Hamilton, President and CEO of MECU Credit Union. “While the event was about the opening of a new branch, it was also about a celebration of the Randallstown community. MECU doesn’t want to be just in the community, we want to be a part of the fabric of the community. We’re dedicated to working with the Randallstown community to build on our legacy of ‘giving back’”.
The community celebration event included food, games, prizes, a kids’ zone, and performance by Singing Sensations Youth Choir, a non-profit organization for students ages 5-18 in the Baltimore Metro Area. The credit union also announced a $1,000 donation to Singing Sensations Youth Choir and a $5,000 donation to the Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company. This included a $10 donation to the Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company for each new account opened at the Randallstown branch during the event.
“I am really, really honored and proud of everything MECU is doing in our community,” said Baltimore County Councilman Julian E. Jones, Jr. “MECU coming here to Randallstown is certainly appreciated and welcomed and we thank MECU for being here.”
