ROANOKE, Va. – Freedom First CU is opening a new branch in Daleville in the former location of Blue Collar Joe’s restaurant, rural Botetourt County’s first full-service credit union branch.

“Freedom First has been serving the Roanoke and New River Valleys since 1956 and we are pleased that Botetourt residents will now have convenient access to Freedom First’s low-cost, high-value services,” said Paul Phillips, president of the $275 million credit union.

The credit union will donate $20 to either the Botetourt Resource Center or the Botetourt Education Foundation for each new loan and every checking account with direct deposit opened at the new branch by March 31, 2013. Members may choose which local agency to support.
