Affinity Group Credit Union, Pontiac, Mich., teamed up with Affinity Foundation for Michigan Kids and Mortgage Center to support Operation: Kid Equip.

The van will help OKE quickly reach more schools, teachers and kids throughout much of the lower peninsula of Michigan.

Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union, Alpena, Mich., presented St. Vincent de Paul Society with a check for $1,770 to help needy families in the communities it serves. AAACU offers SkipaPays during certain times of the year which allows members to skip up to two consecutive loan or VISA payments. There is a service fee per loan to take advantage of the offer, part of which AAACU dedicates to a local charity. St. Vincent de Paul assists less fortunate people with their basic needs–from food pantry items, to financial assistance with utility bills or with other necessities, to clothes and household items from their thrift shop. The mission of the society has two aims: to do a great deal of spiritual good to its members through the exercise of charity, and to do a little spiritual and temporal good for poor families.
