You Don't Need A Gimmick, Just Heart

Industrial Credit Union of Whatcom County shares an important lesson about how to generate excitement within a community.


Kim Sutton, senior vice president of Industrial Credit Union of Whatcom County, hosted a webinar on May 19, 2015, about the success of the credit union's annual food drive. The first time it held this week-long event, it collected 10,000 lbs of food. Twenty years later, the event is so large the credit union takes in 300,000 lbs of food.

In this clip, Sutton describes the powerful lesson the credit union learned from using gimmicks to generate buzz.
