Father's Day Giveaway Winner
Last month in celebration of Father’s Day, we conducted a special “Father’s Day Giveaway” promotion on the Delta Community Facebook page. Members were invited to comment on a designated post about the impact their dads, grandfathers, husbands or other father figures have had on their lives, along with the hashtag #DCCUDads, for a chance to win a $100 Home Depot gift card.
Our winner, Mike, was nominated by his daughter Sheryl, with the following entry:
“I want to nominate my dad Mike McFarland. He is a father to me and my 4 siblings. I would love for my dad to win this because he is always doing for others and never for himself. He is a true definition of a servant to anyone in need. Just last week on my dad’s way to work he stopped for gas, where a young man stopped and asked for help with groceries to help feed his kids and wife so my dad followed the gentleman to the local Kroger to get groceries for his family. This is a weekly thing for him. My dad didn’t grow up with much, but as an adult he gives selflessly on a regular basis! Thanks Delta Community Credit for always reaching out to your community. Even if my dad doesn’t win, I hope this goes to another deserving dad! #DCCUDads”
Congrats to Mike and Sheryl! Be sure to follow us on Facebook for a chance to enter our next photo submission contest.

Ten Steps to Financial Success: Part One: What could be considered “financial success” is different for everyone. For some people it can mean being debt-free, owning a home, affording college for their children, buying a new car or second home, traveling around the world, having enough savings to retire—or just being able to pay all their bills every month. Regardless of what financial success means just for you, it’s unlikely that you’ll achieve it without controlling both costs and expenditures, knowing what you want to do with your money, and planning how to fulfill those goals.
As of May 31, 2019:
Assets: $5.9B | Deposits: $5.1B
Loans: $4.6B | Members: 398,296
