Capital Credit Union donates to Abused Adult Resource Center

GREEN BAY, WI (September 2, 2016) — Capital Credit Union presented the Abused Adult Resource Center (AARC) with a donation of $300, helping the organization recoup the amount recently stolen from a donation box in the Seeds of Hope thrift store. 

“We decided the day we found out about the loss we were going to make it up,” said Dustin Bitz, Capital Credit Union Vice President of Member Services. “The credit union philosophy is ‘People Helping People,’ and we wanted to be sure we helped AARC, an organization that provides valuable services to so many in our state.”

Seeds of Hope is owned by AARC and its proceeds are used to support ongoing programs the organization provides. 

“We are grateful for the caring gesture by Capital Credit Union and its employees in replacing the money taken recently from our Seeds of Hope Thrift and Gift Store.  We will use this gift to help children at the shelters, which was the purpose for the funds that were taken,” said Diane Zainhofsky, executive director of the Abused Adult Resource Center.
