Washington Federal’s International District branch manager Sarah Kung invited the public on April 16 to view the new renovations at Washington Federal Savings in the International District.
The change was celebrated with a lion dance performance. The renovations bring the branch up to date and make the interior uniform with the aesthetic of other local branches. Washington Federal acquired Seattle-based United Savings and Loan Bank, the first Asian American-owned savings and loan in the United States, in 2003, and resides in the same building. Kung previously worked at United Savings, and has been with Washington Federal since the merger. (end)
