Connexus Credit Union donates to Community Food Pantry of Merrill
Connexus Credit Union’s philanthropic program, Connexus Cares, recently donated $12,500 to the Community Food Pantry of Merrill.
The Community Food Pantry of Merrill provides reliable access to food for those experiencing food insecurity. In addition to their food pantry, they provide support to local student projects, a local backpack program, a summer lunch program, the Tomahawk Soup Kitchen, and the MAC Home in Merrill. This donation was designated to the area of greatest need and will be used for general operating costs.
“It’s a great pleasure and honor to be able to provide financial support to an organization that dedicates each day to making sure individuals and families in the Merrill area have access to the food they need, no matter their situation,” said Boyd Gustke, Connexus President & Chief Executive Officer. “Connexus Cares exists for the purpose of giving back to the non-profit organizations in our communities that do so much for people in need – children, adults, family members, neighbors. The positive impact the Community Food Pantry of Merrill makes cannot be overstated, and we’re so fortunate to have their presence in our area.”
