We’re Joining Forces with Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes to Fund Their Children’s Weekend Food Pack Program and We Need Your Votes!

We’ve entered a video into the second annual Love My Credit Union® Campaign contest that highlights local community involvement by the credit union industry across the country and awards up to $21,000 to charities based upon votes from consumers.

Our video highlights our recent school supply drive to benefit area school children, with the goal of garnering votes to fund the Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes Weekend Food Pack Program.

Partnering with Loaves & Fishes is a natural fit for us as many of our staff have volunteered there and we have plans to help staff a new food pantry opening in the north side of Kalamazoo this winter. We’re excited to support an organization that works to improve the lives of many of our area families and speaks to our mission and dedication to strengthening the communities we serve.

Last year Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes distributed 25,782 weekend food packs to vulnerable children in the Kalamazoo region. Jennifer Johnson, Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes Executive Director, says the Weekend Food Pack Program is vital to keeping Kalamazoo’s future leaders healthy and fed on weekends. The program currently serves over 800 children each week.

The official contest runs from October 1 to December 16, 2016, and monthly winners will be determined by most public votes. By the campaign’s conclusion in December, a total of $122,500 will have been donated to selected charities throughout the country.

We need your help! Please vote for our video every day and earn a chance to win a $500 gift card for yourself and $500 for your charity of choice – just for voting.  Vote Here.

Vote for our video once a day, every day through December 16. The more times you vote, the greater chance to win! Be sure to share the love – and the link – with friends and family through email and social media.

 Cash Prizes will be distributed as follows:

  • Up to 50 $1,000 state-level donations
  • Eight $5,000 donations
  • One grand prize winning credit union & one credit union support organization will each receive a $15,000 donation.
  • The campaign will also award five randomly selected campaign voters a $500 gift card, plus a $500 donation to the charity of their choice.
