In the wake of the devastation created by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, LMCU established two donation drives to assist storm victims in Texas, Florida and neighboring states. Monetary donations were accepted at all of LMCU’s 42 Michigan and Florida branch locations as well as through our Online Banking web portal.
Two separate campaigns were established...one for Hurricane Harvey and one for Hurricane Irma. LMCU committed to matching donations, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000 for Harvey and an addition $20,000 for Irma. Over $125,000 was raised including LMCU matching donations!
Relief funds are being forwarded to the American Red Cross® to assist in providing for the immediate needs of those rendered homeless or helpless by the storms. The American Red Cross was selected as the beneficiary of our efforts after consultation with federal agencies, disaster relief organizations, and local groups in the affected areas.
