Members First Celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Authored By: Kristen Williamson on 10/18/2021


As fall comes into full swing, orange pumpkins and yellow mums flock the porches of our neighbors. But there is another important color celebrated during the month of October- pink! Pink signifies the importance of the survivors, the family members, the researchers, and those who are currently battling breast cancer. In order to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Members First Credit Union has several initiatives in place for the month of October for our employees, members, and communities! 


  • All month long, our branches will have coin jars from the American Cancer Society available for you to donate your loose change.
  • Our employees have purchased t-shirts, which will be worn various times in the month of October. Proceeds from the t-shirts are being donated to the American Cancer Society.
  • Our Grand Rapids branches hosted the Survivor Tent at the West Michigan Making Strides event on Saturday, October 16th!
  • The President and CEO of the CU Trust, Jordan Summers, will be making an appearance at our Wackerly Branch in Midland on Monday. October 25th. He will be bringing the American Cancer Society’s pink chair with him for photo ops! He will also be bringing goodies in order to raise funds for his “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign. Be sure to stop in and say hello to Jordan!
  • Our Bluegrass branch in Mt Pleasant is currently raising funds for the Community Cancer Services of Isabella County.  Our Bluegrass staff is asking our members for donations in return for a cancer bracelet.  The member gets to choose whichever color resonates with them and they can color a ribbon as well, in honor of someone close to their hearts, to hang by our teller stations. 
  • Our Clare branch will be honoring breast cancer awareness month by hosting a bake sale from October 18th-22nd. Again, proceeds from this bake sale will be donated to the American Cancer Society. 

We understand that life events, such as a medical diagnosis, can often be unexpected. And with those events come unexpected costs. Some might call it a Personal Loan, but we call it a Life Happens Loan because we know that life happens. If you are facing a life event and your emergency fund isn’t stretching far enough, learn more about our Life Happens Loan and how we can help.

As a locally owned business, our staff has a passion for pitching in to make a difference in our communities. As a credit union, our mission is to help our members through every life event.
