Kellogg Community Credit Union hosts winter coat drive to help support communities

BATTLE CREEK, MI (September 29, 2022) — Kellogg Community Credit Union (KCCU) is ready to kick-off its annual coat drive to help the members of the communities in which they serve stay warm this winter. The coat drive will run from October 1st – 31st, and items can be dropped off in the lobby at any open KCCU branch location. Financial hardship can make it difficult for some families and individuals to ensure that they’ll be dressed properly this winter, making this annual coat drive arrive at the perfect time. We know the KCCU team, members, and the community will come together and show support for this worthy cause, as they have done in years past.

KCCU is partnering with 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), to help provide the cold weather gear to those who may need assistance. Both new and gently used coats, snow pants, hats, mittens, and scarves, that are clean and in good condition, in all sizes from adults to infants and everything in-between, are welcome. The items collected will be distributed to local families in need by these community partners.

“KCCU is pleased to be able to support the communities that we serve in any way that we can. The cold months are approaching and with the financial challenges of the current economy, we want to ensure that members of our community have the cold weather gear they need to stay warm,” stated KCCU’s CEO, Tracy Miller. “This year, like in years past, with your help we can make a positive impact on the lives of families and individuals who may need a little assistance. It’s just one of the ways we give back to the community and live out our people helping people philosophy. It’s an honor to partner with these wonderful charitable organizations and support our local initiatives. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank everyone who donates to our Coat Drive!”

KCCU’s vision statement includes “providing opportunity and lifelong value to our members and our community.” KCCU takes this statement seriously, and for the past eighteen years they’ve hosted a Coat Drive in partnership with community-based organizations like Charitable Union, There’s Enough, United Way, the Salvation Army, and Bethany Christian Services, as part of their commitment to their vision.
