MCCU Supports March of Dimes

Marshall Community Credit Union was a Silver Sponsor at this year’s March of Dimes, March for Babies event at Binder Park Zoo on Sunday, May 1. Fourteen MCCU employees, along with many family members and friends, participated in the walk.

March for Babies is an annual event held to support March of Dimes research and programs that help expecting mothers have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. In addition to participating in the walk, MCCU representatives worked tirelessly to raise money for the cause–fundraisers included selling March of Dimes stuffed animals, collecting change at the teller lines, staff jean days, as well as team members working to raise money through their own initiatives. In all, Team MCCU raised more than $5,200.
