Filer Credit Union is currently having a Cozy Christmas Charity Collection to gather; Hats, Gloves, Mittens, Scarves, Socks, Boots and Clothing to Keep Warm. All three Filer Credit Union locations, two in Manistee and one in Bear Lake, have a collection box in the lobby to accept these donations. All donated items will be distributed to children and teens in the Manistee County Communities.
In past years Filer Credit Union has had a Mitten Tree where they collected hats and mittens to give to local children who may have needed them, which has been very successful. This year they have expanded their Charity Collection to include other warm items needed. “It is a good feeling to help those who are in need and can’t necessarily get for themselves” says Operation Manager Jenni Jans, “our members and the community have always been very generous in helping us each year to make this collection extremely successful”. She goes on to say, “We are people helping people, it’s the Credit Union difference”.
Donation boxes are currently at all office location lobbies until December 7th, stop by between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. if you would like to donate.
