“The main goal of camp is to get kids outside and engaged with nature. However, our focus is to teach kids technical skills that they can use later on in life. The financial education portion that MSUFCU provides fits right into that portion. MSUFCU is laying the foundation of saving and budgeting which are life skills the kids will use after they leave camp.”— Shaun McKeon, MUCC Education Coordinator

Ele's Place Celebrates Grand Opening of Children's Garden

Giving back to the community is a core value at MSUFCU and each year, the Credit Union chooses a local charity to support. In 2009, MSUFCU employees were excited to choose Ele’s Place as their charity campaign fundraiser for the year.

 

After six months of fundraising through raffles, dress down days, and other activities to encourage participation, more than $24,000 was raised! The funds were used to create a beautiful memory garden, the Children’s Garden, which will serve as a space for children to reflect and remember loved ones.

 

On June 4, 2013, Ele’s Place celebrated the much-anticipated ribbon cutting ceremony of their new Children’s Garden.

 

Credit Union volunteers helped to plant flowers in the garden on Saturday, June 1 in preparation for the opening of the garden, and another group of volunteers attended the ribbon cutting ceremony in support of Ele’s Place.

 

A plaque was placed on the wall outside of Ele’s Place to recognize MSUFCU for our donation to help support children at their organization.

 

Ele’s Place is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children and their families. For more information about Ele’s Place, please visit: http://www.elesplace.org/.
