Business of the Month

Congratulations to the Business of the Month Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation

The Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides financial assistance to cancer patients in south Alabama regardless of where they seek treatment. Started over 15 years ago by local oncologists, this organization exists to relieve some of the financial stress our neighbors face while they fight cancer. Each year the Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation pays hundreds of bills for area cancer patients including utility bills, housing costs, prescriptions and medical copays, and provides gift cards for groceries and gas.

The Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation’s director, Joan Kellis, works with a volunteer board of directors to support cancer patients who live in south Alabama. Joan partners with social workers and other community organizations to reach cancer patients in need. Patients qualify for assistance based on residency in Mobile or Baldwin Counties, undergoing cancer treatment and having a financial need. The Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation holds industry events to cover operation costs so that all donations and funds raised locally go straight to patient assistance here in our community.

The Anchor Cross Cancer Foundation will hold its 4th Annual ACCF Masquerade Ball on June 10, 2023 to raise funds and awareness for their work in the community. This event is open to the public and provides a fun night of dinner and dancing for all attendees. It is a special night out for area cancer patients who can attend for free thanks to a generous sponsorship program. For more information on how you can help with this event or their work in the community please visit their website: or visit them on social media: @anchorcrosscancerfoundation.

Congratulations to the Business of the Month All In Credit Union

All In Credit Union

All In Credit UnionAll In Credit Union started as Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union in 1966 during the height of the Vietnam Conflict. As soldiers were deployed, they and their families needed access to low cost financial services while stationed at Fort Rucker. Over the years, our membership base has expanded and it is our goal to provide more people than ever access to affordable financial services they can trust from an organization committed to excellence. On May 8, 2019, we changed our name to All In Credit Union. We chose the name ” All In” as a tribute to the commitment and sacrifice made by every soldier who defends our country and knows what it means to be ” All In”. Although our name may be changing, becoming All In does not change who we are, it only makes it easier for individuals to recognize that they are eligible to experience the same level of benefits that Ft. Rucker personnel have enjoyed for 55 years.

With an original investment of $35, we have now grown to a full-service financial institution with more than 143,000 members and more than $2 billion in assets. In addition to the increased number of products and services, we’ve also expanded to 28 branches located in Mobile and Southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. We look forward to the continued journey ahead and hope you’re “All In!” For 55 years, we’ve been a leader in the financial services industry by delivering personalized financial solutions along with technological advances that provide members convenient account access any time, day or night, from anywhere in the world. In addition to our high-tech offerings, our caring professionals demonstrate that All In CU’s commitment to enriching the lives of our members and communities.
