Co-op Services Credit
Union Branches Spread Holiday Cheer
(Dec. 11, 2002) Co-op Services Credit Union is spreading
holiday cheer at each of its five branches in Western Wayne and
Oakland Counties, by inviting members to participate in a variety
of charitable giving programs.
Credit Union CEO Robert Huston said,
"Our members, board of directors and staff have always been
generous in their contributions to the community. Credit unions
are truly about "people helping people," and this is
a great time of year to reinforce that philosophy and to help
others in need."
Two of the programs supported this
year include the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots and the
2002 Tree of Memories for Community Hospice. The Toys for Tots
program includes collection of new, unwrapped toys at each credit
union office to be distributed as Christmas gifts to children
in local communities.
A Tree of Memories is located at
each of the credit unions branches in Dearborn, Livonia,
Walled Lake, Westland and Wyandotte. Members are invited to dedicate
an angel, with a donation of any amount, to place on the tree
in memory or honor of a loved one. Funds raised directly benefit
the homebound and terminally ill patients of Community Hospice
and Home Care Services.
Credit Union is also supporting two Rotary projects that benefit
charitable programs locally and internationally. The first includes
the sale of a specially produced Detroit Jazz CD to benefit
Dearborn Rotary and Rotary Internationals efforts to eradicate
polio worldwide. Credit Union staff is also distributing coupons
to members for free photos with Santa at the Light Fest in the
Park, located on Hines Drive in Western Wayne County. Proceeds
from the Santa photos benefit Dearborn Rotary service projects.
Co-op Services Credit Union has more
than 50,000 members and assets exceeding $240 million.
The credit union maintains branch offices in Dearborn, Livonia,
Walled Lake, Westland and Wyandotte. Members also have access
to any of 21 Family Service Center shared branches located throughout
Michigan. For more information about Co-op Services Credit Union,
