LMCU gets in the holiday spirit with two great causes

Toys for Tots
LMCU is again teaming up with the US Marine Corps Reserve in this iconic holiday tradition. The annual Toys for Tots campaign runs through December 15. Drop off any new, unwrapped gifts —for kids up to 14 years old— at 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
This is our third year of participation with the Kalamazoo Public Safety and Midwest Communications “Shop With a Cop” program. Disadvantaged Kalamazoo area teens are paired up with police officers for a holiday shopping trip. The goal is to strengthen community ties and promote good financial habits. Kids will get together with these big-hearted cops for a meet-and- greet, a bite to eat, and a brief financial literacy presentation. Then, they’ll all head off for some holiday shopping together. Teens also receive a LMCU savings account.
