TopLine Financial Credit Union Members and Employees Donate Bedding Items

TopLine’s Bedding Drive Benefits Non-Profits to Support Local Communities

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TopLine Financial Credit Union, a Twin Cities-based member-owned financial services cooperative, held their fourth annual Bedding Drive during the month of February benefitting four local non-profits, Avenues for Youth, Karen Organization of Minnesota, MORE Community Services and YMCA of the North Youth and Family Services. TopLine members and employees generously donated bedding items of pillows, sheet sets, comforters and blankets to help bring comfort to those in need in our local communities.

Employees were able to participate by donating gifts and money and TopLine members and other community members could also purchase items from the credit union’s Amazon Wishlist or Target Registry and have them delivered directly to TopLine, and in return delivered to charitable partners. When the program ended TopLine employees and members had donated over 60 bedding drive items and $830 in cash to assist local individuals and families.

“Thank you to all of our generous member and employee donors who joined us in creating comfort and warmth for our neighbors in need,” says Mick Olson, TopLine President and CEO. “Every blanket and bedding item donated brings solace to someone facing uncertainty. Together, let's wrap our community in kindness and support."
