McDonough Branch Grand Opening

new McDonough Branch

Our newest branch is officially open in McDonough at 210 Jonesboro Road! The McDonough Branch is our 26th branch location in metro Atlanta and 29th branch overall. We celebrated the Grand Opening with lunch from Gezzo’s Food Truck, treats from King of Pops, music from 94.9 The Bull and games and activities for our members and guests.

The McDonough Branch will house full-service teller operations, three drive-through lanes and two ATMs, as well as a team of financial professionals to assist Delta Community members with their home, auto and personal loan needs. We look forward to serving our members, and welcoming new ones, with this new location.

Carvana Car Giveaway Winner Rides Away in Style

 Carvana car giveaway winner

Member Florence Owoeye was all smiles as she was handed the keys to her 2018 Kia Sorento at our Vinings Branch last month. Florence was automatically entered in the Delta Community-Carvana $20K Car Giveaway Sweepstakes in February after she obtained a Delta Community Personal Loan. After her name was randomly selected in the sweepstakes drawing, Florence was given her choice of vehicle from Carvana’s fleet. “I’ve always had good experiences with Delta Community, but winning this SUV is just beyond belief,” said Owoeye. “With two daughters in middle school and a four-year old son, this gives us plenty of room for everyone. Delta Community and Carvana made it so easy to find our dream car.” Congratulations, Florence!

Mother's Day Giveaway Winner

contest winner

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we recently conducted a special “Mother’s Day Giveaway” promotion on our Facebook page. Members were invited to post comments on our page about the impact their moms, grandmothers, wives or other mother figures have had on their lives for a chance to win a gift card to Massage Envy.

Our winner, Tracy, nominated her mom Diann with the following entry:

“I nominate my mom, Diann Johnston. She is my best friend and the best mom and grandmother. In November 2018, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She recently started radiation and her strength and determination astound me. Even while weak from cancer, she still manages to care for daddy, make 5 course meals, help others and always ready to pray with me when I feel defeated. I am adopted and though she isn't my blood mom, she tells me all the time (45 years, every mother's day) ‘I may not have carried you in my womb but you've always been in my heart.’”

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for a chance to enter our next photo submission contest.
