Saginaw Medical Federal Credit Union collected items for the Toni and Trish House
Saginaw Medical Federal Credit Union (SMFCU) collected items and monetary donations for the Toni and Trish House for the Care of the Terminally Ill during the month of March. This collection campaign was wildly successful; SMFCU was able to donate a truckload of supplies and $460 in cash from donations received from credit union members and employees.

“We were pleased to support the Toni and Trish House because like us, this organization is truly ‘people helping people, which is the credit union philosophy we strive for every day,” said Laura Crase, president/CEO of SMFCU. “We were thrilled to be able to donate so many needed supplies and monetary donations that will directly benefit the guests staying at Toni and Trish House.”

The Toni & Trish House is a home, not a facility, providing compassionate, dignified end of life care in a peaceful, home-like environment. The Toni and Trish House is located at 4699 S. Eleven Mile Rd in Auburn.
