TLC Community Credit Union recently donated $2,500 to Boy Scouts of America, Chief Lenape District, in support of operations of local scouting efforts. Over the past five years, TLC has donated a total of $12,500 to the program.
The Chief Lenape District serves more than 760 youth members in Lenawee and Hillsdale Counties. TLC’s donation will help support local camps, youth programs, and adult leadership training to ensure the best Scouting experience.
As a former Cub Scout and Boy Scout, TLC President and CEO Randy Smith is pleased the credit union is able to assist local kids with education and support. District Chairman Bryan Bowers thanked TLC for their continued support of area youth through Boy Scouts of America.
Northland Area PAC Pin Fundraising Sees Significant Increase
Northland Area Federal Credit Union recently announced positive results from a new fundraising effort for PAC pins. Team members can now participate in dress down Fridays, opting to wear jeans when purchasing a 2019 PAC pin. Within the first few days of the announcement, sales had already increased dramatically and as of the third month of 2019, PAC pins sales have increased over 152 percent.
“Northland [Area] has always been a strong leader in PAC fundraising to help advocate for credit unions and this specific fundraising avenue certainly made sense,” said CEO Pete Dzuris.
Northland Area is continuing to PAC fundraise throughout the year, developing new fundraising strategies, so that credit union members’ concerns are heard in Washington.
