DEARBORN, Michigan – In an effort to help those in need during the holiday season, Co-op Services Credit Union is partnering with Greater Media Detroit to support The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Drive. Now through December 18, people who visit any of Co-op Services eight branches throughout metro Detroit can donate $1 to receive a paper Red Kettle to sign and display at the credit union.
“The growing display of Red Kettles in our lobbies during the holiday season shows the tremendous generosity of members and staff who readily help others less fortunate in our community,” said Lisa Fawcett, marketing director of Co-op Services Credit Union.
The Red Kettle campaign is the charity’s largest fundraiser of the year that helps provide critical services to people in need. Founded by William Booth in London, England in 1865, The Salvation Army is a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving people in need without discrimination.
During this past year, The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit was involved in providing more than 3 million meals and 687,203 nights of shelter for the homeless. The Salvation Army uses $.85 of every dollar raised, to provide direct services to people in need each and every day of the year.
Headquartered in Livonia, Co-op Services Credit Union has more than 52,000 members and maintains eight full-service branch offices in the Detroit metro area. Members also have access to more than 3,000 shared branches and 28,000 ATMs nationwide.
