We want to thank our members and the community for allowing us to serve you. We know our duties to the community go beyond running a successful credit union. It’s important for us to be a community beacon, and to provide opportunities for the whole community. When we get involved with the community, it’s not any one person that stands alone. Collectively as a group we support each other, and influence positive interactions within the community.

We are proud of what we accomplished, and you should be too. As we look forward with excitement, we want to showcase the programs we support. These community programs reflect the character of our Board of Directors, our staff and our members, and we hope you are as proud of these initiatives as we are. We could not have made this impact without you!

Warriors for Warriors Pink Out

We joined the Pink Out for the first time in 2021. We made a donation to Warriors for Warriors, joined the planning committee, and volunteered at the event. This event is a marquee fundraiser in the area, cancer touches nearly everyone’s life at some point, and we plan to do everything we can to support this event in the future.

WLCSD Therapy Dog Program

We currently sponsor three therapy dogs in the Walled Lake Consolidated School District. As the program expands we will continue to support this program. The therapy dogs teach students the value of hard work, discipline, compassion and love, and those are values we have at WLSFCU. These furry friends make our community a better place, and we have heard directly from our members how much they appreciate this program.

Foundation for Excellence

We are a long time supporter of the Foundation for Excellence. They provide the school district with a lot of valuable resources, such as teacher development and classroom supplies. Often times, teachers have to pay out of pocket for supplies and development, and we step in when we can to minimize those burdens. This year we were able to make over $10,000 in donations to the Foundation for Excellence.

Hospitality House Food Pantry

This year, we were able to make a $4,000 donation to the Hospitality House Food Pantry going in to the holiday season. Not only that, several of our employees and their family members helped package 200 Thanksgiving meals and prepare a fundraiser mailing. Plus, we served chili at the Outrun Hunger 5K that raised even more money for the Hospitality House Food Pantry and the Open Door Outreach Center.

Open Door Outreach Center

We were able to donate over $4,000 to the Open Door Outreach Center. They serve as a food pantry and thrift store, as well as provide additional resources for people in need.

Lakes Area Youth Assistance

We were able to donate over $4,000 to the Lakes Area Youth Assistance. Lakes Area Youth Assistance is a non-profit that offers professional counseling services, and conducts programs for youth and their families who live within the Walled Lake School District.

Beaumont Halloween Boo Bags

We sponsored Halloween Boo Bags for 20 kids at Beaumont Hospital. Through a partner of ours, we helped these kids get activity books and other Halloween goodies to celebrate one of the best kid’s holidays. It’s always tough to be stuck in a hospital, but it’s even worse when it’s a kid.

Walled Lake Western Basketball Court Time Sponsorship

Often times, high school sports teams have unexpected costs to cover. We were approached about a donation to cover weekend court time for the WLW basketball team, and we helped the team cover the costs.

Military Families United of Michigan

We made a donation to aid the shipping of several US Troop Care Packages.

National Cookie Day

On National Cookie Day we surprised the Wixom Police Department with a few dozen cookies and milk from Guernsey’s. It’s just a small way for us to show the men and women in blue that we appreciate them and everything they do to keep our communities safe!

We are looking to continue supporting these great causes, and we are also looking to expand on our community programs. We are hoping to make 2022 an even more impactful year, and we hope you are as proud as we are to support these causes!
