MICHIGAN CITY | During the month of May, Members Advantage Credit Union collected military donations to send to our troops. Donations where dropped off at the Michigan City Ohio Street location during the entire month.

Member’s Advantage Credit Union’s free Community Shred Day was held on May 31. The event was a success with donations of shampoo and conditioner, non-perishable food items, doggie treats and toys, and much more being collected.

“We are very proud to send donations to our troops through our Give Back To Our Troops event,” said Frank Beachnau, president of Members Advantage Credit Union. “Members Advantage is humbled by the support and participation from community members and organization volunteers.”

Members Advantage Credit Union paired with Michigan City High School ROTC and Supporter’s of the Military to package and deliver donated items to our troops. Members Advantage is grateful to The Wall Gang for escorting donations to Supporter’s of the Military, where donations will be packaged and sent overseas.

Beachnau added that combining the donation drive with the Credit Union’s Shred Days was a huge success in more ways than one.

“Our free community shred days were very busy helping the public in safe document shredding and many donations were collected in support of our troops,” Beachnau said.

The Members Advantage Community Shred Day and Give Back to Our Troops event was well attended. All donations will be packaged and sent over seas to help support the troops. Members Advantage is excited to see the continued success of this event in the future.
