“There was an awesome feeling of community since everyone there donated their time for a great causeâ”making sure every family in Ortonville would have food for Thanksgiving. During my regular working hours in the Ortonville office, I have processed deposits for individuals who organize the OCEF food drive program. They told me they were able to help about 140 families from that event. We look forward to doing it again next year!”— Kelly, Credit Union employee
