During the month of March, Firefly Credit Union locations (including the Maple Grove location) dedicated the month of March to raising funds in support of the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge of Minneapolis, an organization that houses individuals diagnosed with cancer for weeks, or even months, as they seek treatment.

There is no cost to stay at the Hope Lodge, all locations are supported through donated time and money. 

While the stay at the Hope Lodge of Minneapolis is free, patients and their caregivers still need to provide their own meals, which is where Firefly assisted. All collected funds were donated to provide groceries and meals for the patients and their caregivers.

 During Firefly Credit Union’s fundraiser month, employees were able to donate money and participate in many exciting activities. The charitable events included flamingo insurance,        bingo, ping-pong tournament, dip-off competition, silent auction baskets, and jeans days. 

With a month’s work and generous employee participation, Firefly Credit Union raised a total of $4,232 to donate to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge of Minneapolis.

“What an exciting month we had here at Firefly. Year after year our employees show their generosity and exceed expectations,” Firefly Credit Union President/CEO Bill Raker said. “Thousands of individuals across Minnesota are diagnosed with cancer every year. To be able to dedicate our time and resources to give back to those who need it most is something that we love to do!”
