Consumers Credit Union celebrates with Women’s Resource Center on grand opening of new location
KALAMAZOO, MI (July 18, 2023) — Consumers Credit Union’s partner, Women’s Resource Center, recently celebrated the grand opening of its new location in Grand Rapids.
The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) has been working to empower women in the workplace since 1973 through innovative programs and services to effectively motivate and inspire all women who seek meaningful employment.
As part of the credit union’s support of the WRC, Consumers has committed to a multi-year partnership with the organization, thereby funding the lobby of the new space.
As the result of the capital campaign, WRC was able to surpass its goal of $2 million and raised a grand total of $2.8 million to fund the new space.
“We have been so fortunate to receive such tremendous response to this important campaign, the first in our 50-year history,” said Women’s Resource Center CEO Sandra Gaddy. “Our campaign leadership joins me in thanking the community for their meaningful gifts.”
“We are proud to partner with the Women’s Resource Center, which does incredible work equipping women for success in the workplace,” said Consumers President and CEO Scott Sylvester. “Consumers team members are eager to support this meaningful organization through volunteer opportunities as WRC continues to support women in our communities.”
“Thank you, Consumers Credit Union for partnering to provide workforce development to women in our community seeking a better life for themselves and their families. We look forward to serving more women in our community in this amazing new space,” said Gaddy.
