Throughout the fall, Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) hosted a coat and winter gear drive in partnership with the Green Oaks, Libertyville, Mundelein, Vernon Hills (GLMV) Chambers of Commerce to benefit the Midwest Veterans Closet. Collection drop offs were located throughout the Chicagoland area at all 13 GLCU branches.

With the help of the GLCU staff, its members and communities, GLCU collected over 500 coats and other winter gear items.

Midwest Veterans Closet provides a lifetime of support to all veterans and their families. Through their efforts, Midwest Veterans Closet provides help to more than 1 million veterans every year.

“GLCU is pleased to help our local communities by teaming up with an organization that looks out for and serves veterans who are in need,” said Steve Bugg, President and Chief Executive Officer.
