A helping hand; Members of the Mower County Employees Credit Union raised funds for Disabled American Veterans

The Mower County Employees Credit Union in Austin, Minnesota held its annual membership meeting on April 18, with something special to offer its membership. Member Merry V. utilized her talent of quilt making and donated a beautiful American themed quilt for the credit union’s annual meeting. With the thoughtful brainstorming ideas of Merry and the credit union staff, it was decided to request donations and award the quilt as a door prize at the meeting. Members of the credit union were eager to participate knowing all funds donated would be given to the Disabled American Veterans: Arnold Brandt No. 27 Chapter located in Austin. The chapter works closely with the Mower County Veteran Department to empower veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. Members of the Mower County Employees Credit Union donated $174. Proceeds are on their way for delivery to the local chapter.
