Credit Union ONE staffers and family members participated in the Walk for Warmth to raise funds and promote awareness of the needs of low-income people.

Credit Union ONE, Ferndale, Mich., announced that a team of approximately 55 staff and family members walked this year in the 23rd annual Walk for Warmth at the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills. The Walk for Warmth is an annual event that raises funds and promotes awareness of the emergency needs of low-income people. All funds raised benefit those who face heat-related emergencies during Michigan’s harsh winters. This was the credit union’s sixth year in the walk, and the team continues to grow each year. This year Credit Union ONE, a Heart of Bronze sponsor, contributed close to $1,000 to the Walk for Warmth, which included walker pledges and a corporate donation made on behalf of everyone that walked. In 2012, 405 families and over 1,100 individuals were assisted by the Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency with funds from Walk for Warmth, and the need is even greater this year, the credit union said.  As always, 100% of all proceeds go back into the community, it added. The goal this year is $180,000 for the walk, and by all indications this will be exceeded, Credit Union ONE said.
