CASE Credit Union will utilize a grant received from the Michigan Credit Union Foundation to conduct a series of meal giveaways to demonstrate their support and appreciation for members who are local educators and school employees.
CASE Credit Union members who are school employees will be automatically entered into a drawing to receive a gift card to a local member food establishment. A total of twenty gift cards will be distributed.
“CASE Credit Union was founded by educators, and that foundation is still supported today,” said Jeffrey Benson, president & CEO of CASE Credit Union. “From the onset of COVID-19, our front line school employees had to quickly adapt their traditional methods of teaching to instructing an online curriculum. This was unchartered territory for many educators. We applaud them for their adaptability and undeterred focus on fostering brighter futures for youth in our community.”
Each gift card will be purchased from a food establishment that is also a member of CASE Credit Union, in an effort to provide a boost to struggling small businesses throughout the Greater Lansing region.
“This program was designed as a way for CASE Credit Union to provide support and appreciation to our business members, by providing an opportunity to increase traffic and revenue during these challenging times,” said Benson, president & CEO of CASE Credit Union. “We understand the financial strain this has placed on many of our member businesses and we aim to support them in any way we can at this time. We believe shining a light on them to support and increase their patronage is one of those ways we can lend a small hand during a difficult time.”
