MACU Offers Employees the Opportunity to Give Back

Not only does this allow us to give back to our community, but it also helps our team remember our mission to serve our community. 

Coronavirus: Scammers follow the headlines

"Scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the Coronavirus. They're setting up websites to sell bogus products, and using fake emails, texts, and social media posts as a ruse to take your money and get your personal information.

The emails and posts may be promoting awareness and prevention tips, and fake information about cases in your neighborhood. They also may be asking you to donate to victims, offering advice on unproven treatments, or contain malicious email attachments."
