Credit Union ONE makes strides for Walk For Warmth

FERNDALE, MI (February 20, 2015) — Credit Union ONE staff and family members walked this year in the 25th Annual Walk for Warmth which was held on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills.
The Walk for Warmth is an annual event that raises funds and promotes awareness of the emergency needs of low-income people. All funds raised benefit those who face heat-related emergencies during Michigan’s harsh winters.
“This was the 8th year of participating in the walk for Credit Union ONE, and we are extremely pleased that our team participates each year,” said John Kozich, Vice President of Community Relations for Credit Union ONE.  Our staff is very enthusiastic about this very worthwhile cause and looks forward to it each year.
A Heart of Bronze sponsor, Credit Union ONE contributed close to $1,000 to the Walk for Warmth, which included walker pledges and a corporate donation made on behalf of everyone that walked.
The goal this year was $180,000 for the walk, which is expected to be reached.
In 2014, over 330 families were assisted by the Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA) with funds from Walk for Warmth, and the need is even greater this year.  As always, 100 percent of all proceeds go back into the community.
Credit Union ONE, headquartered in Ferndale Michigan for over seventy years, offers a wide array of financial services and access to over 30,000 ATM’s nationwide, serving 117,000 members, with eighteen offices in three major metropolitan areas, including Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids and Traverse City.
