Gerber FCU colleagues & members support Newaygo County Compassion Home

FREMONT, MI (December 18, 2023) — Gerber Federal Credit Union employees raised a total of $1,495.22 for donation to the Newaygo County Compassion Home for the Terminally Ill. Gerber FCU President/CEO John Buckley (pictured farthest left) and Marketing Officer Heather Wiersema (pictured 2nd from left), presented the check to Diane Rudholm (pictured 3rd from left), the Newaygo County Compassion Home Executive Director and Dr. Douglas Johnson (pictured 4th from left), the Newaygo County Compassion Home Board President.

Each year colleagues donate their own funds, collect funds and hold fundraisers such as Squeegee days in our drive-ups or Bake Sales in our lobbies to raise funds for the Compassion Home. Colleagues Patti VanDyke (pictured farthest right) and Sue Carter (not pictured) organized a donation drive in October. Gerber FCU colleagues and members donated items needed to supply homes available to individuals in our community who are nearing the end of life.
