Genisys continues their dedication to heating homes in Oakland County
AUBURN HILLS, MI (March 18, 2014) — Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula, was recently the premier sponsor for Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency’s (OLHSA) Walk for Warmth event, which was held at Great Lakes Crossing Outlet Mall in Auburn Hills. Additionally, Genisys Credit Union members and Genisys Credit Union employees raised over $27,000 to assure local neighbors stay warm during the winter months.
“Every year, we are blown away by the community support,” said Ronald B. Borngesser, OLHSA CEO. “The energy and enthusiasm of the walkers and sponsors is heartwarming and truly makes a difference in the lives of those in need of a helping hand during the cold winter months.”
In addition to the $27,000+ Genisys Credit Union raised for Walk for Warmth, nearly 75 of their employees and families were present at the event. Manager of Public Relations and Community Involvement, Linda Zabik, sat on the Walk for Warmth board as fundraising chairperson and the Genisys Band was also present to provide entertainment to those walking at the event.
“It is remarkable to see the amount of dedication our members and Genisys staff has towards Walk for Warmth,” said Jackie Buchanan, President and CEO. “All of the staff really enjoys helping out for this cause, which is in line with our corporate mission.”
The purpose of OLHSA’s Walk for Warmth is to bring the community together to raise funds and awareness for emergency utility assistance. It is a family-friendly walk-a-thon event where 100% of the funds raised are used to warm hearts and heat homes for those in need in Oakland County. Through the Walk for Warmth walks in both Oakland and Livingston County OLHSA has currently raised a total of $147,000 to assist families in need.
