Westconsin Credit Union employees donated both their time and money to help Our Neighbors’ Place (ONP) Backpack Program during the month of March as part of Westconsin Credit Union’s 75th anniversary. Volunteers from Westconsin unloaded food delivered by Second Harvest to the Food Pantry and transported food items to Ezekiel Lutheran Church for the backpack program. On Thursdays they helped Greenwood students fill backpacks full of food for families needing help.
