American 1 CU Spreads Holiday Cheer Through Surprise Santa
American 1 CU teamed up with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and Meijer to purchase $5,000 worth of Christmas gifts to give out to random individuals in the community.
A sheriff’s deputy would initiate conversation with a driver at a traffic stop while an American 1 staff member was listening in and relaying the information back to additional staff to do the shopping. Another deputy would help race the items out to the traffic stop location and surprise the driver.
“I want to thank American 1 for their continued community partnership,” Sheriff Steve Rand said. “This particular event was an enjoyable way to share American 1 and the Office of the Sheriff’s sentiments about the people we serve. Staff at the Sheriff’s Office are grateful for the relationship we share with American 1 and the Jackson community. We wish everyone in the community a very Merry Christmas.”
The gifts ranged from televisions, iPads and video game systems to powerwheels and Frozen children’s items. The event took place on Dec. 2 and 3.Go to main navigation
