AAACU Volunteers with United Way of Northeast Michigan
Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union (AAACU) team members recently volunteered with United Way of Northeast Michigan for their Back to School Clothing Initiative.
Volunteers were paired with students (grades 6‒12) from Alcona, Alpena and Montmorency counties to help purchase clothing, shoes, personal hygiene products and school supplies for the upcoming school year.
This is the third year United Way of Northeast Michigan has been able to provide this event to students in need, and due to donations received from within northeast Michigan, 33 students were able to benefit from this program.
“Being a part of this event and seeing the looks on the students faces and the excitement for them to pick out what they wanted is one more reason why I love volunteering and doing my part to better our community,” said Michelle McEwen, director of advocacy for Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union. “There was no mention of video games or toys; it was about bettering themselves for the start of school.”Go to main navigation
