“Sponsoring a community event like the Teddy Bear Picnic is so important because it gives MSUFCU employees the opportunity to interact with a wider demographic and contribute to family fun. Our group of volunteers did a great job of putting smiles on children's faces. We were able to have conversations about the Credit Union with kids as young as seven, as well as with their families.”— Lily, Credit Union volunteer
