Great Lakes Credit Union announced that United Way in Bolingbrook is among 13 area organizations that will benefit from $39,000 in donations.
This year, GLCU’s Board of Directors adopted a new philanthropic initiative to give back to communities where its members live. The credit union said it will donate $39,000 to 13 organizations located within communities where GLCU branches are located throughout Lake, McHenry, Cook, DuPage and Will counties.
The branch managers of each location were asked to help the board choose a local charity to donate $3,000.
Organizations benefitting from the initiative include: United Way of Will County in Bolingbrook, Open Arms Mission in Antioch, Gurnee Explorers Unit, Coalition for Healthy Communities in Zion, ASCEND in Waukegan, Fat Cat Rescue, Inc. in North Chicago, McHenry County Community Foundation in Crystal Lake, Helping Paws Animal Shelter in Woodstock, Operation Support Our Troops in Naperville, the Ronald McDonald House in Oak Lawn, Village of Willow Springs Veterans and Family Relief Fund and B.E.S.T in Round Lake Beach.
