EAST LANSING, MI — MSUFCU and its employees support a number of charities and organizations in the Mid-Michigan area. From January through June of 2012, MSUFCU employees raised funds for the Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS), with a goal of contributing $24,000. MSUFCU employees were thrilled to surpass this goal, raising $30,634 through employee donations and fundraisers including raffles, dress down days, a managers’ car wash, bake sales, and a putting outing.
MSUFCU’s Charity Committee selects a different charity annually to be the recipient of its employee fundraising activities between the months of January and June. Charities supported in previous years include Sparrow Hospice Services, the Boys & Girls Club of Lansing, and Ele’s Place. MSUFCU staff raises funds to support the Capital Area United Way between the months of July and December each year.
The Capital Area Humane Society is a private, non-profit organization serving people and their pets in Mid-Michigan. For more than 127 years, CAHS has been sheltering homeless animals, fighting animal cruelty and neglect, and offering programs to address the needs of animals and pet owners.
