Kellogg Community Credit Union Coat Drive has local impact!
BATTLE CREEK, MI (November 4, 2022) — Kellogg Community Credit Union (KCCU) held its annual coat drive throughout the month of October. The goal behind the coat drive is to help the members of the communities in which they serve stay warm during the upcoming colder months. With the current economy the way it is, KCCU knows that every coat, hat, and mitten that they collect will be put to good use in our community.
KCCU is proud of their Team and Members who truly live out the credit union philosophy of people helping people, donating over 291 new and gently used coats and cold weather items this year. A variety of sizes were donated, ranging from infants to adult. KCCU partnered with these local charities and nonprofits to make sure the items donated get to those in need: Charitable Union (Battle Creek); There’s Enough (Marshall); St. Joseph County United Way (Three Rivers); Salvation Army (Kalamazoo County); and Bethany Christian Services (Grand Rapids).
“With winter just around the corner, we are so grateful to everyone who participated in our coat drive this year” stated Tracy Miller, KCCU’s CEO. “We are honored to be able to collect and provide these essential winter items for local charitable organizations to distribute. We know how important it is to provide support to members in the communities we serve, and we are committed to do so. This would not be possible without the KCCU team, KCCU members, and our community. I want to thank everyone who donated for your generous support this year. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
KCCU’s vision statement includes “providing opportunity and lifelong value to our members and our community.” KCCU takes this statement seriously and has demonstrated their commitment by hosting a Coat Drive for the past 21 years as they know there is always a great need for the items collected.
