(Maple Grove, MN) — May 16, 2023 — TopLine Financial Credit Union’s second annual baby care supply drive held during the month of April benefited three local non-profits, Avenues for Youth, Keystone Community Services and YMCA of the North Youth and Family Services. TopLine members and employees generously donated diapers, wipes, and other baby care items to help bring comfort to families in need in our local communities.
Employees were able to participate by donating baby care items and money in exchange for a “Foundation Friday/Saturday” sticker, allowing them to wear jeans to work. TopLine and community members could also purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist or Target Registry and have them delivered directly to TopLine, and in return we delivered to our charitable partners. When the program ended employees and members had donated 3,768 diapers, over 100 wipe packs and $790 in cash to assist local families.
“We are committed to strengthening our communities and providing much needed in-kind and monetary donations to improve the quality of life for individuals and families,” says Mick Olson, TopLine President and CEO. “We are grateful to all of our kindhearted members and employees who contributed to our baby supply drive.”
