“It is exciting to support a program that allows local children in our community to work closely with college-aged students. These children are being exposed to experiences that show the opportunity they will have through continuing their education.”— April Clobes, MSUFCU President and CEO

Employees Volunteer at Lansing Incubator Farm As part of Lansing Roots Garden Project

Our employees were excited to volunteer on Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at the Lansing Incubator Farm located in Mason, MI. Employees helped with weeding, mulching, and other various site preparations for the gardens which are part of the Lansing Roots project.

Lansing Roots is a community gardening program designed to improve community food security as well as donate resources to the Greater Lansing Food Bank. The farm's community gardens help expand small-scale farming in Mid-Michigan and provide new income opportunities for struggling families, by providing the tools and space needed to become self-employed farmers.  

Each year, MSUFCU employees come together to focus on various fundraising and volunteer efforts for the Capital Area United Way. United Way is an organization whose goal is to create a world where all individuals and families achieve their potential through education, income security, and healthy lives, and the Greater Lansing Food Bank is one of the many organizations which they serve.

Supporting the United Way, and coming together to volunteer at the Lansing Incubator Farm is just another one of the ways employees canmake make a difference in our community.
