DCECU employees raise money to benefit American Red Cross
MIDLAND, MI (March 26, 2014) – Employees at Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union raised more than $425 for the American Red Cross Great Lakes Bay Chapter through their most recent “Jeans Day” fundraiser. For each of the one-day fundraisers, which occur throughout the year, participating DCECU employees donate a minimum of $5, which entitles them to wear blue jeans, tennis shoes and logoed attire to work that day.
The American Red Cross Great Lakes Bay Chapter is a key humanitarian partner and a vital participant in Michigan’s plans and programs to help people in the local region. The chapter responds to an average of two to three disasters a week and provides immediate humanitarian aid to people affected by those disasters. The chapter also trains residents to be ready with vital lifesaving skills, including CPR/AED and first aid; provides individuals, families and businesses with preparedness information and skills; and has a corps of close to 100 volunteers.
“Our staff at DCECU truly believes in giving back to the community,” said DCECU President/CEO Dennis Hanson. “The ‘Jeans Day’ fundraisers are completely driven by the passion of our employees. By supporting organizations that assist those who need it most, we know we are helping to make the world a better place. Our employees work hard to serve not only our credit union members, but the entire community.”
