AAACU donates to Friends Together

Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union recently donated to the Friends Together Wheelz Campaign.

Friends Together is an organization that offers assistance to community members touched by cancer in the form of support groups, assistance with transportation, education, and an open door so no one has to face cancer alone.

The Wheelz Campaign was a fundraiser to assist in the purchase of a new van to help transport patients to and from appointments.

Friends Together previously had two vans and was putting more than 4,000 miles on those vans each month while assisting community members throughout Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency, Oscoda, and Presque Isle counties.

The goal of the campaign was to raise $30,000 through donations and community support, and, just two months after the campaign was kicked off, Friends Together was able to purchase their third van.

AAACU was proud to support the campaign with a donation of $7,500.
