Two Farmington-area businesses recently announced the results of successful food drives that benefitted metro Detroit charities.
Friedman Integrated Real Estate Solutions's fourth annual Canned Food Drive collected over 2,480 pounds of food over the course of two weeks.
“We are thrilled to be donating over one ton of food for the less fortunate in our community,” said Stan Finsilver, Executive Vice President of Friedman. “Every year, we make it our goal to surpass the previous year’s record, and we have succeeded in our efforts each drive. We are all very proud of this accomplishment.”
Co-op Services’ members recently donated approximately $175 and nearly 100 pounds of canned food for Gleaners Community Food Bank at the credit union’s 4the Annual Rock n’ Roller Skate Party, held at Bonaventure Skate Center in Farmington Hills.
“We’re always amazed by our members’ generosity,” said Jeremy Cybulski, Co-op Services’ youth and community development coordinator.
Cybulski organized the annual skating party for the credit union’s Rock Star Savers and their families. The Rock Star Savers program is designed for children through age 11 to help teach them about saving money.
The credit union’s popular Rock Star Mascot was also on hand to greet the young members and pose with them for individual picture-taking. Rock Star Mascot is a frequent visitor to nine local elementary and middle schools that have student credit unions in partnership with Co-op Services.
