GLFFCU Dress Down Fridays Raise Funds For Good Cause

Each year, Great Lakes First Federal Credit Union’s employees from the Escanaba, Gladstone and Rapid River locations give money throughout the year to participate in “Dress Down Fridays,” which is then donated to various charities. This year, they donated $1,435.00 and split it between between two charities, Delta Animal Shelter and Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and Pat Payton, one their employees, for medical expenses.
