LMCU gets into the spirit of the season sponsoring two worthy causes

Toys for Tots
LMCU is again proud to partner with the US Marine Corps Reserve in its annual Toys for Tots campaign. And you can help! From November 18 to December 15, you can drop off any new, unwrapped gifts—for kids up to 14 years of age—to any LMCU branch or corporate office. No toy guns, weapons or violence-oriented games, please. Cash donations will also be gratefully accepted.

Shop with a Cop
Now in its third year of participation, LMCU is again teaming up with Kalamazoo Public Safety and Midwest Communications for its Shop With a Cop program. This annual event pairs disadvantaged Kalamazoo-area teens with police officers for a holiday shopping trip, while strengthening community ties and promoting financial literacy. After a meet and greet, a bite to eat, and a brief financial literacy presentation, teens and officers head off to go holiday shopping together. Teens also receive a LMCU savings account.
