FCCU to Support Project Ignite Light


FCCU to Support Project Ignite Light

FCCU’s first charity cause for the year, as voted for by members and staff, is Children’s and Youth causes. Charity efforts will be spread out across quarters one and two, with many of the funds going towards Fargo Sanford’s new Micro-Preemie unit. Learn more about the NICU here! 

To kick off the year, we will be supporting Project Ignite Light! FCCU will be holding a Blanket and Pajama drive at each branch to benefit the organization.  

Now through March 15th, branches are accepting donations of new two-piece pajama sets in sizes newborn through 18 years of age.  Members may also drop off new tie blankets. Please follow blanket instructions per Project Ignite Light. See here.

Project Ignite Light is an organization that gives thousands of abused children a piece of security and hope. They provide ‘Bags of Hope’ to every reported abused child in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Each bag is customized for the child and includes a blanket, pajamas, toiletries, a flashlight, a book, and a water bottle. Learn more about Project Ignite Light.

Other fundraising efforts throughout the first half of the year will include Jeans Fridays, Flannel Friday, a silent auction, sales of World’s Best Chocolate bars, and more.  

Stay tuned for more updates on charity causes! Thank you to our community and members for their support.
