"When we all come together, it's really amazing what we can accomplish," says Kathie Trembath, CEO of DMCU. "There's no such thing as a contribution too small and we're very proud of the efforts by our employees and members each and every month. October was our largest donation this year and we're proud that the money will go towards breast cancer awareness and research," says Trembath.
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, DMCU contributed to both the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research and Susan G. Komen to the tune of a combined $1,668. DMCU employees raised funds this month by conducting a bake sale, where employees would bake or purchase baked goods which then were in turn sold with all proceeds benefiting the Breast Cancer Research.
"Our donations usually don't reach this high of an amount and it just goes to show you how much the community cares about breast cancer awareness," Trembath says.
To make a contribution, look for the lobby donation bin the next time you visit your DMCU branch office. The credit union's charity for November is Wigs for Kids, whose mission is to improve the self-esteem and confidence of children affected by diseases that result in hair loss.
