TopLine’s Diaper and Wipe Drive Benefits Local Families
MAPLE GROVE, MN (June 21, 2022) — TopLine Federal Credit Union’s first-ever Diaper and Wipe Drive held during the month of April that benefited three local non-profits, Avenues for Youth, Keystone Community Services and YMCA of the North Youth and Family Services. TopLine members and employees generously donated diapers, wipes, and other baby care items to help bring comfort to families in need in our local communities.
Employees were able to participate by donating baby care items and money in exchange for a “Foundation Fridays/Saturdays” sticker, allowing them to wear jeans to work on specific days during the four-week program. TopLine members could also purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist or Target Registry and have them sent directly to TopLine, and in return we delivered to our charitable partners. When the program ended TopLine employees and members had donated over 4,600 diapers, over 200 wipe packs and $660 to assist families in need in our communities.
“TopLine remains committed to meeting the critical needs of individuals and families in our communities, as well as seeking out new ways, to help those that need a little extra assistance,” says Tom Smith, TopLine President and CEO. “Thank you to all our donors who contributed to our first-ever diaper drive to support community needs.”
Since 2002, TopLine Federal Credit Union employees and members have been involved in several programs each year to benefit several local non-profit organizations. In addition to the baby care items from this drive, these efforts have included drives for food, personal care items, clothing, bikes, children’s back-to-school supplies and more.
