The recent Lake Trust Credit Unions’ sponsored Lake-to-Lake Food Drive was a success, collecting over 21,000 pounds of food, which will provide 25,000 meals for Michigan families in need this holiday season. The Lake-to-Lake Food Drive was an effort to help fill pantry shelves at local food banks and took place at all 21 branches throughout the state.
“Everyone at Lake Trust Credit Union is dedicated to making a difference in the many communities, from Lake-to-Lake, we serve,” said Lake Trust President and CEO David Snodgrass. “We would like to thank our members and community partners for their overwhelming support.”
Food collected during the food drive was distributed to a number of local charitable food distribution agencies around Michigan that partnered with Lake Trust, including the Greater Lansing Food Bank, Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank, Food Gatherers, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan and Isabella Community Soup Kitchen. In addition, Two Men and a Truck and FireKeepers Casino Hotel were invaluable partners in this community effort.
“We are so grateful for all the food and monetary donations that we received,” Snodgrass said. “Our joint efforts will make a big difference in the lives of many in our communities, who may not have otherwise been able to enjoy a nice holiday meal.”
