Wyandotte, Mich. — July 1, 2021 —In tandem with the June 11 celebration of the renovation of its Wyandotte, Michigan headquarter branch, Michigan Legacy Credit Union CEO Carma Peters announced major financial donations to two area non-profits: The Downriver Community Food Pantry and the Wyandotte Rotary Club.

The Downriver Community Food Pantry, a Wyandotte-based organization focused on feeding the hungry and based behind St. Patrick Catholic Church, received a $10,000 donation. The Wyandotte Rotary Club, a member club of Rotary International, a global service organization that exists to put service above self and to network leaders together to strengthen the community, received $15,000.

“As a credit union, we rely on our valued members and the communities we serve for mutual success, so it is with a grateful heart that Michigan Legacy makes these donations to local charities who are doing so much good for our neighbors,” said Peters.

The renovated Wyandotte branch follows a theme of a 50’s style diner prototype slated for several branches. The goal is to emphasize the customer service ethos of a time gone by, showcasing nostalgia and good feelings within a functional space boasting the most modern banking tools available to credit unions, including virtual tellers. Leading technology, a fun theme and an exhilarating color scheme of blue, orange and green are helping staff and members alike are flourish in the vibrant new environment.
