During October, Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union highlights cancer awareness
Friday, October 6, 2017
Aitkin Independent Age (October 6, 2017) - Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union (MMFCU) will focus and raise dollars for cancer awareness throughout the month of October. Cancer is a major public health problem worldwide and is the second leading cause of death in the United States. There are many amazing local programs and services to help people with cancer and their loved ones understand it, manage their lives through treatment and recovery and find the emotional support they need.
The Mid-Minnesota family has an intimate relationship with cancer and has recently been touched by its sadness. With that, each branch community will be choosing a specific cancer to support, raise awareness and collect donations which, in turn, will stay local.
The Aitkin branch will be collecting funds to support the Riverwood Foundation – Cancer Support Program which funds cancer patients who are receiving Chemo-therapy with Comfort Care Bags including gas cards and things to help them feel comfortable such as socks and prayer shawls.
Throughout the month of October, MMFCU branches will accept cash donations for the Riverwood Foundation Cancer Support Program and will be selling ribbons for $1 each to be hung up in the lobby. All dollars collected by our staff and membership will be matched dollar for dollar by the credit union.
Together the community has the potential to raise a great deal of money for charities that provide support to members of the community when it is needed the most.
