American Eagle Financial Credit Union, Connecticut’s largest community-focused credit union, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 24th at its new Avon office, located at 427 West Avon Road. The facility, American Eagle’s 14th community banking office, is managed by Andrew White. As part of the ribbon-cutting festivities, American Eagle announced $2,000 donations to six Avon nonprofit agencies totaling $12,000. Half of the funds came from a corporate donation and half came from American Eagle's Donor-Advised Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
