MICHIGAN CITY | During the month of April, Members Advantage Credit Union will be collecting military donations to send to our troops. Donations can be dropped off at both Michigan City and Portage branch locations at anytime in April and during Member’s Advantage Credit Union’s free Community Shred Days on April 20th and 27th from 9 a.m. till noon. Desired items include shampoo and conditioner, non-perishable food items, doggie treats and toys, and much more.
“We are very proud to be holding a Give Back To Our Troops event,” said Frank Beachnau, president of Members Advantage Credit Union. “Members Advantage will be collecting many items that our troops need everyday, and we are excited to show them our appreciation by sending them these donated supplies.”
Members Advantage Credit Union will be pairing with local ROTCs, VFWs, and Supporter’s of Military to package and deliver donated items to our troops. Donations will be collected throughout April during branch hours. An approved list of all items requested by our troops is available at www.macuonline.org or at any Members Advantage Credit Union branch location.
Beachnau added that combining this donation drive effort with the Credit Union’s Shred Days is a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community in more ways than one. “Our free community shred days are open to the public for safe document shredding and are also serving as large drop-off locations for troop donations,” said Beachnau.
The Members Advantage Community Shred Days will allow community members to bring old documents, CDs or videotapes to a mobile shredding unit for safe disposal at no cost. The Shred Days will be at the Members Advantage Credit Union’s Portage Branch, 6170 US Highway 6, on April 20 and again on April 27 at the Michigan City Members Advantage branch, located at 3064 S. Ohio Street, both from 9 a.m. till noon.
