Where You'll See GOLD in the Community

Lehigh Valley Phantoms 2023-2024 Hockey Season

GOLD Credit Union is excited to be partnering with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms for the third year in a row to bring you the GOLD Star First Responder of the Game! During the 2023-24 season, First Responders will be selected to be recognized as the First Responder of the night. This special acknowledgment recognizes local men and women who are serving or who have served as First Responders throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding communities. The recognition includes two (2) tickets to a Phantoms home game and in-game video recognition. 

The GOLD Star First Responder recognition is a great way to honor the first responders who go above and beyond the call of duty to serve and protect our community. 

Know a first responder who deserves to get recognized? We want to hear all about them! Nominate them for their service today. Be sure to include a brief description of your First Responder's service and reason for nomination.

Cookie Bake-Off Fundraiser

Cure your cookie cravings while you help fight housing insecurity. Your $5 donation gets you a sample of all 11 cookies in the bake-off competition and a ballot to cast your vote for the tastiest confection among them. Tasting packages are available beginning at 11 AM on Friday, December 15 at our 4703 Hamilton Blvd location. Our pop-up cookie shop will stay open until our cookies sell out—get here early to be sure you don’t miss out.

Just a sample not enough? For a suggested donation of $10,* snag a bag of 11 full-sized cookies and the secret recipes to make them at home yourself whenever a cookie craving strikes.

All funds collected will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Lehigh of the Lehigh Valley to help create stable, affordable housing across our area. Our fundraiser can only accept cash, but members will have easy access to exact change from your GOLD accounts in the branch.

December 15 is also your last opportunity to drop off a new, unwrapped toy for our Toys for Tots collection to benefit local kids in need this holiday season.

*Minimum donation of $5 required for bag of full-sized cookies and recipes.
