After a year of internal fundraising, LAFCU’s Giving Committee recently presented $21,568 in donations to three lucky charities: Capital Area United Way ($8,923), Ele’s Place-Capital Region ($6,322.50) and The House of Promise ($6,322.50).
LAFCU’s Giving Committee organized dress down days, auctions and other events for LAFCU employees to raise funds for benefiting Greater Lansing and Shiawassee County charities. To support employee efforts, the credit union contributed $5,000.
“We are incredibly proud of our employees and the impact they make every day in our communities,” said Amanda Seger, LAFCU accounting manager and chairperson of the Giving Committee. “Small donations made throughout the year can really add up. This is just one way we demonstrate our philosophy of People Helping People.”
Selection of recipient organizations is based on employee suggestions. This ensures the program benefits causes that employees truly care about.
“We are so grateful to LAFCU and its employees,” said Nick Lynch, Capital Area United Way vice president, fund development. “This generosity will help many in our community.”
