Wednesday, May 23 was a bustling day at 601 South Mangum Street in Durham as the Self-Help CU branch held a grand re-opening to celebrate brand new renovations. All morning cars pulled up in the parking lot and the front door swung open constantly. Some people came for free shredding or to recycle electronics. Many came for a special ribbon-cutting, led by Durham Mayor Steve Schewel.
Through shredding and speeches and all the hubbub, our members came in to do their everyday business: making deposits, cashing checks, talking to a loan officer about a loan.
