2020 Backpack Giveaways
Our extremely popular summer backpack giveaway events helped bring backpacks and school supplies to thousands of kids across Michigan!
Throughout the summer, we were honored to present Backpack Giveaway events in Holland, Redford, Livonia, Wyandotte, Warren, Jackson, Hillsdale, and Muskegon. The Credit Union’s investment of more than $32,000 helped provide more than 2,000 kids with backpacks filled with school supplies.
