(TopLine Federal Credit Union) MAPLE GROVE, Minn. — Thanks to an extremely generous donation from a member, TopLine Federal Credit Union was able to donate 25 handmade quilts with matching pillowcases to foster youth in our community. A credit union member dropped the quilts off at TopLine’s Brooklyn Park branch location and, in turn, TopLine donated them to Family Alternatives, a local nonprofit that helps foster youth. TopLine prides itself on the commitment to giving back to our local communities in a variety of ways. Every year TopLine holds a number of drives such as collecting food, personal care items, holiday gifts, hosts an annual fundraising event and participates in many volunteer opportunities. “Our TopLine family cooperative spirit of helping one another is steadfast, says Tom Smith, TopLine President and CEO. Over our 85 year history, it’s during challenging times like COVID-19 that remind us the importance of supporting each other and ensuring everyone has access to much needed personal care items to continue to help keep our community healthy and safe.” Since 2017, TopLine Federal Credit Union employees and members have been involved in several programs each year to benefit Family Alternatives. Each year, TopLine’s Knitting at Noon club donates scarves to Family Alternatives’ annual holiday party. To date they’ve donated over 430 handmade scarves to local foster youth. Family Alternatives is a youth driven agency that enhances relationships, advocates for services and supports the development of youth in foster care. Based in Minneapolis, Family Alternatives supports youth in their development by providing nurturing family environments. Visit www.familyalternatives.org to learn more.
