FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Holland Heights Elementary School Hosts Lake Trust Credit Union and Operation Warm Teaming Up to Provide Winter Coats to Students
U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga joins Lake Trust team members for credit union’s “Moved By Good Day” dedicated to the community
BRIGHTON, Mich., October 22, 2019 – Lake Trust Credit Union celebrated its second annual Moved By Good Day dedicated to helping basic humans needs by joining with Operation Warm in Holland to provide winter coats for children. On October 14th, volunteers from both organizations and U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga from Zeeland distributed 300 brand new coats.
In addition to Holland Heights, Lake Trust and Operation Warm also delivered coats at Lansing’s Gardner International Magnet School and Dove Academy of Detroit for a statewide total that exceeded last year’s giving. Across the country Operation Warm is known across the country for its mission to help children and has provided more than three million new coats since 1998.
“I joined employees from Lake Trust Credit Union to help pass out winter coats to students at Holland Heights Elementary. It was great to see organizations and employees engage, support, and work to make our community an even better place to live, work, and raise a family,” said Rep. Huizenga.
“This year’s Moved By Good Day builds on our local community support of such terrific organizations such as Kids’ Food Basket and Holland Rescue Mission,” said Lake Trust Community Impact Manager DeAndre Lipscomb, who also serves as Lake Trust Foundation executive director. “We celebrated our new Holland branch relocation earlier this year, and for Lake Trust it’s always been about more than a new building or member accounts. It’s about what we can do for the community, whether in Holland or all across Michigan to make a difference.”
More than 350 Lake Trust Credit Union employees, family members and friends came together on theColumbus holiday to help schools and 501(c)(3), non-profit organizations that focus on basic human needs efforts to improve Michigan communities. In addition to offering their team members eight hours of PaidTime Off per year to volunteer for Michigan 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, Lake Trust designates Columbus Day for team members to focus particularly on helping the underserved.
Lipscomb emphasizes the community orientation of the credit union, hoping Moved By
