Horizons Federal Credit Union will celebrate its 17th year of Family Fun Friday with a press conference on Friday, August 31st at 12:30 p.m. at the credit union’s main office at 120 Main Street in Binghamton.

The award-winning Family Fun Friday provides free, fun, and educational activities for children of all ages. This year the children will enjoy crafts, games, music by Mix 103.3, mascots from the Rumble Ponies and Binghamton University, the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park Zoomobile, a school supply and backpack giveaway, and more. Free hot dogs, ice pops, apples, granola bars, chips, popcorn, and drinks will be provided.

Family Fun Friday is made possible with the generous support of Barnes & Noble of Vestal, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, the Binghamton Devils, Binghamton University Athletics, Wal-Mart, McDonald’s – Main Street, Wendy’s – Main Street, Catholic Charities of Broome County, FidelisCare, Wegman’s, Maines Food & Party Warehouse, Five Below, and Huff Ice Cream Co. Horizons Federal Credit Union members also donated backpacks and funds to purchase additional school supplies and backpacks, making this year the biggest school supply giveaway in the history of Family Fun Friday.

Horizons has won the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award 12 times for its many community efforts, as well as three times for its Family Fun Friday program. This award recognizes a credit union that goes beyond personal finance education and gives back to members of the community through outreach programs. Over the last 16 years, Family Fun Friday has touched the lives of thousands of children and families – fulfilling the credit union’s social purpose of “people helping people” and inspiring a sense of pride for the community.

Horizons Federal Credit Union serves nearly 12,000 members who live, work, or attend school in Broome County. In addition to its Main Street branch, Horizons Federal Credit Union has offices located in the Campus Plaza in Vestal and on Hooper Road in Endwell.
