Yesterday’s Small Business Counts lunch cash mob hosted by ORNL Federal Credit Union at Hot Bagel Co. in Oak Ridge was a success in every way, from the Channel 8 morning interview, to the 77 people that attended, to the fact that the 30 gift certificates for non-employees were given away in less than 40 minutes. Owners Tom and Donna Sullivan were overwhelmed with the support and asked jokingly at the end of the event if there was any way we could do this every day.
Making the cash mob even better, ORNL FCU recognized member Mark Medley at the event for his nomination of Hot Bagel Co. and awarded him with a $200 gift certificate (which covers one cup of coffee and bagel per week for the next year) to thank him for his support for small business. It’s all part of the credit union’s commitment to improve the communities that it serves by lifting up its citizens and business owners.
