American 1 CU

Michigan CU fills the stockings of the needy

American 1 Credit Union held a bake sale prior to Christmas to benefit a local shelter.

The bake sale raised more than $350 to fill 64 Christmas stockings--including 34 for children and 30 for mothers--at the shelter.

The funds filled stockings with piggy banks, lotion, candy, nail polish, and more. Additionally, the bake sale paid for the donation of bath and kitchen towels for general use at the shelter.

The credit union's Brooklyn branch also made and delivered baked goods to the Brooklyn Police and Fire Station on Christmas Eve.

American 1 is a $252 million asset credit union in Jackson, Mich.
