On Monday, October 8, more than 300 Lake Trust Credit Union team members will be spending the holiday donating their time to make a difference by supporting projects that solve problems throughout Michigan communities. The Michigan-based Credit Union, spanning from Lake To Lake is recognizing their efforts as a Moved By Good Day. The traditional Columbus Day holiday means many financial institutions will close to customers, but this year Lake Trust team members will participate in helping 501(c)(3), non-profit organizations in many areas of Michigan served by the credit union.    

“Monday is going to be an inspiring day for our team members,” said Lake Trust Credit Union President and CEO David Snodgrass. “While many organizations can contribute money to worthy causes and organizations, Lake Trust Credit Union and the Lake Trust Foundation already financially contribute through partnerships, outreach programs, grants, financial assistance, and support for our community’s underserved people. But a commitment of volunteer time is equally, if not more valuable, and we are going to make a huge contribution of volunteer time this year. Through Moved By Good Day, we’ll match team members with a passion of giving back by spending their time volunteering for a 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.”

Lake Trust Credit Union offers their team members, annually, eight hours of Paid Time Off to volunteer for local, 501(c)(3), non-profit organizations. For more information about Lake Trust Credit Union, The Lake Trust Foundation and Moved By Good, please visit laketrust.org.
