MSUFCU Donates $46,000 to Organizations Supporting Community Members
To provide additional help to community members during this challenging time, MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) has donated $46,000 to several organizations throughout the communities we serve.
The credit union and its foundation, the Desk Drawer Fund, helped support five organizations on the front lines of helping community members in need. These include:
- Haven House - $2,500
- Holy Cross Services - $2,500
- St. Vincent Catholic Charities - $2,500
- Tri County Office on Aging - $5,000
- YMCA Healthy Living Mobile Kitchen Bus - $2,500
In addition, MSUFCU donated $30,000 to Sparrow Hospital, with $10,000 to the Sparrow’s Care for the Caregivers fund, which supports caregivers who have been exposed to COVID-19 and who have lost income, and $20,000 to the Challenge Response Fund, which helps shore up the current strain on Sparrow’s resources in caring for our community.
The Desk Drawer Fund also donated $1,000 donation to the Baldwin Public Library Trust, benefitting a local group’s goal of manufacturing 30,000 face shields in 30 days. Through the Baldwin Public Library, a group of dedicated volunteers are using the library’s 3D printers to create plastic headbands and face shields. The face shields will be distributed across Michigan, with a particular focus in Oakland County due to the number of cases.
“We recognize that local organizations need our help now more than ever. Because of this, we are redirecting funds to several organizations on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said MSUFCU Chief Community Development Officer/Executive Director of the Desk Drawer Fund Whitney Anderson-Harrell. “During these unprecedented times, we continue our commitment to our mission, contributing to a universal wellbeing and investing in our local communities.”Go to main navigation
