United Federal Credit Union Celebrates New Toscana Park Branch with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Toscana Park Branch Ribbon Cutting

GRANGER, Ind. – United Federal Credit Union (United) celebrated its continued expansion into northern Indiana with the opening of its Toscana Park branch in Granger, Indiana on September 17 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The branch, located at 7514 Gumwood Road, is the third free-standing United branch to open in northern Indiana since 2018.

“Opening this new branch reaffirms United’s commitment to serving our community,” said Alysa Snell, United’s Market Vice President—Indiana. “Since we first announced plans to expand in northern Indiana, the team at United has made amazing connections through community partnerships and hours of volunteering. We’ve made a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors by making United a place where our members feel comfortable discussing their finances, and we’re thrilled to be part of the incredible momentum being generated in Granger, Mishawaka, and South Bend.”

Denise Weaver will lead the Toscana Park location as branch manager. Weaver will use her more than 20 years of financial services experience to maintain the performance of the branch, provide solutions to members, and leadership and supervision to staff. Prior to her appointment as Toscana Park branch manager in July 2019, Weaver served as United’s assistant branch manager at the credit union’s Edison Lakes branch in Mishawaka.

“Our Toscana Park branch team knows first-hand what is possible when truly passionate people come together to work hard for each other, the membership, and the community,” said Denise Weaver, United’s Toscana Park Branch Manager. “Not only do we help our members get the best financial service possible, we also have a willingness to step up and step in, so this community continues to grow and prosper.”

United opened the doors to its new 2,500 square foot branch on September 3 and is currently serving members. Construction of the branch building started in January and was managed by The Redmond Company. The Toscana Park branch is a full-service extension of United, offering personal and business banking services including loans, mortgages, and investment planning. “From the moment United Federal Credit Union entered our market, they have demonstrated a visible commitment to the community,” said Rob DeCleene, Executive Vice President of the South Bend Regional Chamber. “It’s great to see their success and growth. It’s good for them and wonderful for our region.”

United also made a $1,000 donation to the Gary Sinise Foundation in honor of Member Scott Wilson’s military service. Wilson is a retired Lance Corporal LCPL who served three years in the Marine Corps in Operation Freedom I and Freedom II in Iraq. He is one of the first Members to join the Toscana Park branch. Students of Penn High School’s brass quintet played the national anthem for the branch’s flag dedication ceremony.

In October, United will open its fourth branch in northern Indiana, located at 3630 Bremen Highway. United opened its first two locations in the region in 2018 with branches on Edison Lakes Parkway in Mishawaka and Ireland Road in South Bend.
