Affinity Group CU celebrates Youth Month with some wild visitors from the Huron-Clinton Metroparks!
To celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month this April, Affinity Group Credit Union has invited the Metroparks Mobile Learning Unit to visit all 6 Southeast MI CU Branches.
“The Mobile Learning Unit is an interpretive outreach program providing an opportunity for people to connect to the natural resources and cultural heritage of southeast Michigan,” explained Metroparks Interpretive Services Manager Jennifer Hollenbeck. “This program was specifically designed to meet the needs of teachers with limited resources.”
The Metroparks will be bringing some of their wildlife buddies with them when they visit the credit union. From snakes to frogs to salamanders, credit union Kool Kid members and field trips from local elementary schools will have the opportunity to view, touch and learn. Dates and locations for Mobile Learning Unit visits include:
- April 17th at Highland – 290 N. John Street Highland, MI 48357
- April 20th at Garden City – 27621 Warren Rd, Garden City, MI 48135

The Partnership between the Affinity Group Credit Union, the Metroparks and Affinity Foundation for MI Kids (AFMK) was launched in 2014 when AFMK made available $3,500 in grants to the Metroparks. These grants are providing opportunities for local schools to visit the Metroparks Interpretive Centers and bring the Metroparks to their school through the Mobile Learning Unit. In support of this grant program, members, employees and others are encouraged to make charitable contributions to AFMK during the month.
Also during April, credit union members can take advantage of a 10% discount on their 2015 Huron-Clinton Metroparks Park Pass just for being a member! Get your annual pass right at the credit union…then “Get Out And Play!”
The Affinity Foundation for Michigan Kids (AFMK), a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation was created in 2010 to provide educational and personal growth opportunities to Michigan kids. AFMK rallies member and community support by collecting financial donations and school supplies at all six Southeast Michigan AGCU branches. You can support our effort during your next trip to one of our branches by making a charitable contribution – www.agcu4mikids.org.
