American 1 CU Raised over $900 for Alzheimer’s Research
JACKSON, Mich. – American 1 Credit Union is dedicated to the communities they serve and feel strongly about giving back. American 1 Credit Union’s monthly charity for the month of December was the Alzheimer’s Association: The Great Lakes Chapter in Chelsea, MI.
The money was collected through a variety of activities. The American 1 Marketing Department put together “abay”, which is “ebay” for American 1 Staff. Items were collected or donated and then bid on by staff members. There was a dress down day for Christmas, where staff members could pay $5 to wear jeans and a Christmas sweater, the Friday before Christmas. The Home Office and North Street branch locations also have fresh popped popcorn and bottled water available for a donation, every Friday.
Altogether $890 was raised through these fundraisers, for the Alzheimer’s Association.
“We’re so happy to be able to raise money for great charities each month. The staff really enjoys being able to give back,” said Jayme Bicknell, Event Coordinator at American 1 Credit Union.
