MACU has been a longtime supporter of the Michigan City Salvation Army and recently donated $2,000. The money will help further the Salvation Army's mission in Michigan City, which includes, among other outreaches, helping feed nearly 800 local families.
Non-profit Steady Stitchers just received a $500 donation from MACU. Steady Stitchers uses donated finances and fabric to create various items for community members, including afghans and hats for preemies, backpacks, hats, scarves, mittens, walker and wheelchair totes, and more.
For the second year, MACU donated $500 to NewDay Foundation. NewDay's mission is to help cancer patients as they struggle with everyday challenges. Donations are used to create "Bags of Hope" comprised of items that help patients cope during chemotherapy, as well as purchase and distribute coloring books, activity books, etc. to children in the hospital.
Bob Havens, MACU Executive Vice President, said, "As a credit union, we are humbled to be able to help our friends and neighbors in the way we do. Our community has so many worthy organizations, and we are honored to be able to help support the great work they do."
