Heritage Credit Union teams up with local photographers to highlight community landmarks in branch transformation M & M Photography captures unique scenes of Rockford.
ROCKFORD, IL—September 6, 2019–Heritage Credit Union tapped local photographer M & M Photography to capture unique, yet recognizable scenes, in Rockford to highlight the credit union’s ties to the community.
“When we began researching how we wanted to remodel our branch to illustrate our long-standing commitment to Rockford, it was an easy choice to highlight the community we serve. Members have truly enjoyed seeing the community in a different way. Then we added a pop of teal to the photos to make them uniquely Heritage,” says Renee Howse, Heritage Credit Union’s Rockford Branch Manager.
“We were both incredibly humbled and honored by the opportunity to provide a portfolio of photography for this project. Rockford has always been a city that is visually unique. It was an amazing experience to create images that not only represent the beauty of our hometown, but to do it in a way that showcases both the history and the modernization of our city,” says Michael and Melissa of M & M Photography.
To celebrate the branch transformation, located at 5959 E. State Street, the community is invited to view the branch murals and meet Michael and Melissa of M & M Photography on Saturday, September 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be food, activities, and special offers provided throughout the event, as well as an opportunity to enter a raffle for photographic prints by M & M Photography.
To further support the community, Heritage Credit Union is collecting donations through September 30 for the Rockford Rescue Mission who is particularly in need of dry cereal, oatmeal and sugar.
