Helping families in need

In February, Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union provided a boost to Gladwin County parents and children via a donation to the Gladwin County Baby Pantry, which provides supplemental assistance to local families in need.

The pantry, which is a program of the Gladwin County Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council, serves parents of children ages birth to 5 by providing diapers, baby food, formula, and gently used baby items and clothing.

DCECU Senior Executive Assistant to the CEO Susan Phillips delivered an assortment of items – coats, sleepers, socks, mittens, blankets, safety products, diaper bags, baby bottles and more – to the pantry on behalf of the credit union, which purchased the items to donate to the organization.

“It was like Christmas,” Baby Pantry Volunteer Jan Baumann said of the donation. “The need in Gladwin County is great for these types of supplies.”
