Public Service Credit Union Donates $2,000 to the Pink Fund
Public Service Credit Union (PSCU) recently collected $2,000 from employee donations and breast cancer bracelets sales for the Bloomfield Hills charity, The Pink Fund.
The Pink Fund was founded by breast cancer survivor Molly MacDonald. The fund’s mission is to provide financial support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow breast cancer patients in active treatment to focus on healing while improving survivorship outcomes.
“We knew we wanted to donate to a charity specific to breast cancer,” said Patty Depa, PSCU Core System Product Developer and Giving Committee Member. “I did some research and found that The Pink Fund was unique. They helped warriors going through the fight with their finances. We are a credit union, so it just made sense.”Go to main navigation
