Gerber FCU Awards $60,000 in Community Grants!

FREMONT, Mich. (11/8/18) Gerber Federal Credit Union awarded three grants as part of a one-time Community Dividend: 1) A $25,000 matching grant to the ‘Building a Healthy Future’ capital campaign to produce a new Health and Leadership Lodge at Camp Newaygo 2) a $25,000 matching grant to the ‘Leave a Legacy’ capital campaign for improvements to the accessibility of the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts 3) a $10,000 grant to the City of Fremont in cooperation with the Fremont Community Recreation Authority and the Newaygo County Pickleball Club for the construction of an outdoor pavilion in the new Darling Walkway development.

“Gerber Federal Credit Union is pleased to support the communities we serve,” said John P. Buckley, Jr., Gerber Federal Credit Union President/CEO.  “We encourage the community to donate to these important projects.  Gerber FCU will match the community’s generosity up to $25,000 for each of the Camp Newaygo and Dogwood projects.”

The Camp Newaygo project to build the Health & Leadership Lodge caps the three-phase, two-year Building a Healthy Future Campaign for Health, Leadership, & the Arts.  The Health & Leadership Lodge is a two-story, 6,085-square-foot facility that replaces the 85-year-old nurses’ cabin on the 104-acre camp’s grounds.  The lodge is to provide space for community use and health initiatives along with care for campers with health concerns and clinical experiences for nursing students. The lodge includes additional staff and intern housing for an enhanced year-round program, along with recovery rooms, a nurses’ treatment station, two meeting rooms and outdoor adventure staging area and gathering space.  For more information on Camp Newaygo visit www.campnewaygo.org.

The Dogwood Center for Performing Arts project includes improvements that will increase accessibility to the facility with a canopy covered drop-off point, push-button handicap entrance doors, additional handicap parkingand increased designated walkways and crosswalks.

 

The City of Fremont Darling Walkway downtown beautification project includes replacing two blocks of Darling Avenue and one block of Sheridan Street as part of a Streetscape project to install a walkable parkway with decorative sidewalk, art nodes, landscaping, benches, lighting, and a new parking lot. The Project also includes the installation of a new Outdoor Pickleball Court system and pavilion on the Rec Center’s parking lot at the southwest corner of Darling and Maple.  For more information on the City of Fremont visit www.cityoffremont.net.

Gerber Federal Credit Union was founded here, and we’re focused on growing here.  We have two branches located in Fremont and one in Newaygo.  Stop in or visit www.gerberfcu.com to learn why Newaygo County trusts Gerber FCU as their financial partner.
