President’s Letter: When Free Means Free
Free can be a word that is overused too much. Sometimes there’s a catch to it and sometimes free is really not free. Here at AFFCU, we have some services that truly are free.
We offer CyberMAT online banking and our mobile app to you at no cost. These services are available to you at any time and can be accessed from your PC or smart phone. Better yet, once you have services with us, you can opt to use Bill Pay without paying. So you can pay your bills monthly, without spending money on envelopes or stamps, and get them paid on time with a click of a button.
eStatements are free as well. Not only are they free, they’re fast, convenient and secure. Once you sign up, you can get your account statement in a timely manner. We even email you to let you know it’s ready. And no more paper statements that can cost you.
So what’s the catch? There is none. It’s part of our commitment to you to provide you the most convenient and secure service to do business with us. What we promise to you in the value of service is what we will stand behind every time.
Reach out to us to see how we can help you with some of these services. A phone call or visit with one of our representative will not cost you anything—but can save you much more.
As always, I remain in service to you,
Robert “Bob” Glenn

Million Summer Meals for Kids Wrap Up
1 in 4 children in our community will experience food insecurity. That means when school is out, over 200,000 students in Bexar County will lose access to the nutritious meals they once received. AFFCU, for the fifth consecutive year, decided to be a proud sponsor of the KENS 5 Million Summer Meals for Kids food drive to ensure no child went hungry.
The food drive kicked off June 8th and ended August 24th. Throughout the drive, AFFCU kept one goal in mind ̶ to help collect 11 million meals so the San Antonio Food Bank could provide nutritious meals to children in need. Each of our local branches placed donation bins inside to accept donations. The AFFCU Marketing team stationed themselves outside of several local H-E-B’s to collect donations from shoppers. Plus a check for $2,500 was donated to the San Antonio Food Bank from AFFCU.
We are grateful for all the efforts made by the AFFCU staff, our members, the other sponsors and everyone who made a donation to the food drive. We are pleased to announce that we finished this food drive strong. The goal was exceeded and a total of 11.15 million meals was collected!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Million Summer Meals for Kids and to the San Antonio Food Bank for allowing us to be part of this great purpose. We look forward to participating in this great cause again next year!
