“Giving Dinner” Sponsored by Great Lakes Credit Union

Contact:  Sue Malo

A contingent of staff from Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) took time out on Sunday, November 21st to help the less fortunate. 

The “Giving Dinner” was hosted at the Greenbelt Cultural Center, in partnership with the Lake County Forest Preserves, and offered a free holiday buffet to approximately 300 low-income and homeless individuals who were encouraged to attend by local missions and shelters.  Live entertainment, storytelling for the kids, and singing performances were provided for those who might otherwise have no hot meal, companionship or celebration during the holidays.

All the many coats, warm clothing items and children’s books generously donated by GLCU members and staff were distributed to all who were in need.

Especially in this harsh economic climate, GLCU staff felt privileged to be able to give back to struggling individuals and families and receive a smile or gesture of gratitude in return.
