People First Federal Credit Union has opened a new solutions center at 26 N. 6th St. in Allentown.
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held May 19.
Located on the corner of the ArtsWalk and 6th Street, the Center is in walking distance for downtown residents and businesses.
“We are striving to make our diverse suite of banking and lending products as accessible as possible for the community, and we are very proud to add this location to our growing list of access points,” said Howard Meller, CEO of People First.
The Center, designed to provide a modern approach to financial services, will be staffed with four professionals under the leadership of Marc Knox.
“As a relationship-based financial institution, we are committed to helping the Allentown community find the right banking solutions that support their unique goals,” said Meller. “In addition to providing bank products and state-of-the-art technology comparable to any big bank, our core strengths remain in the personal attention, competitive pricing, local decision making and exceptional service.”
The ribbon cutting ceremony included the unveiling of the first winning artwork of its annual Mural Arts contest. The contest was open to all Lehigh Valley residents with the intention of recognizing and encouraging the artistic talent in the region. Submissions were reviewed by a committee made up of People First board of directors and members of Allentown Mural Arts and the Allentown Arts Commission.
The winner, Sarah Karess, is an Allentown-native graphic designer and artist who is actively involved in the arts community. The winning artwork will be displayed for one year in the People First windows. In celebration of the opening,
