Baby supplies donated by Topline Financial Credit Union members and employees

TopLine’s diaper and wipe drive benefits local families

MAPLE GROVE, MINN. (May 14, 2024)TopLine Financial Credit Union, a Twin Cities-based member-ownedfinancial services cooperative, held their third annual diaper and wipe drive during the month of April benefitting three local non-profits, Avenues for Youth, Karen Organization of Minnesota and YMCA of the North Youth and Family Services. TopLine members and employees generously donated diapers, wipes, and other baby care items to help bring comfort to families in need in our local communities.

Employees were able to participate by donating baby care items and money in exchange for a “Foundation Friday/Saturday” sticker, allowing them to wear jeans to work. TopLine and community members could also purchase items from the credit union’s Amazon Wishlist or Target Registry and have them delivered directly to TopLine, and in return delivered to our charitable partners. When the program ended employees and members had donated 27 packs of diapers, 55 wipe packs and $835 in cash to assist local families.

“We are committed to connecting with our community non-profit partners to help fulfill needs they are experiencing,” says Mick Olson, TopLine President and CEO. “Our people-first philosophy is supported and demonstrated by all our generous donors, and we are grateful for their compassion in helping others through challenging times.”
