“The Peckham Art from the Heart event is one of my favorites. It warms my heart to see the overwhelming support from our community. The employees of Peckham, who create the artwork, are ecstatic to have their artwork showcased and guests are amazed by the beauty and inspiration of the art. I am thankful to be a part of such a wholesome event. ”— Arianna, MSUFCU employee

Make a Difference This Mother's Day

We are excited to partner with Two Men And A Truck for the seventh annual Movers for Moms campaign, to collect items in honor of Mother's Day for women and children currently staying at local women's and family shelters. Join the effort to provide hair care products, soaps, lotions, shampoo, conditioner, pillows, blankets, slippers, baby food, diapers and basic clothing items.

 

Two Men And A Truck was founded by Mary Ellen Sheets, a Michigan native and single mother at the time the organization introduced the Movers for Moms campaign, which aims to raise awareness of domestic violence and provide assistance to and help give women and moms living in shelters something to look forward to on Mother’s Day.

 

Two Men And A Truck will deliver collected items to the City Rescue Mission, C.A.R.E, Haven House, SafeCenter and SIREN/Eaton Shelter in Charlotte. Many of these shelters serve survivors of domestic violence and help families, providing temporary housing, support, advocacy, education, and information to the community. All items will be distributed to the women and children using these services and facilities in time for Mother's Day.

 

Donations can be dropped off at any MSUFCU branch in the Greater Lansing area, Monday, April 14, through Friday, May 2, 2014. To find out more about the Movers for Moms program or Two Men And A Truck, visit their website.
