Honor Credit Union Holds Bottled Water Drive for Benton Harbor Schools and Community

BENTON HARBOR, Mich.- November 5, 2018—Honor Credit Union is collecting bottled water to donate to the Benton Harbor Area School District and community after recent tests showed elevated levels of lead in the Benton Harbor water system. The community is encouraged to donate cases of sealed water bottles to area Honor Credit Union locations.

The Benton Harbor School District has turned to bottled water while the community's water supply remains under a state advisory for higher than acceptable levels of lead. Honor's Benton Harbor Branch Manager, Andrew Cleminshaw, heard about the contaminated water supply and immediately put a plan in action to help. After reaching out to local businesses, Cleminshaw received a donation of 300 cases of bottled water from Whirlpool Corporation.

"The partnership between Honor Credit Union and Whirlpool has been a wonderful undertaking allowing both of our organizations to provide relief to the Benton Harbor Area School District in their time of need," commented Cleminshaw. "Benton Harbor is important to both organizations, and we look forward to additional partners and members teaming up with us to help our community."

Sealed and packaged bottled water can be dropped off at the following Honor Credit Union branch locations through November; Benton Harbor, St. Joseph, Stevensville, and Coloma. All donations will be delivered to Benton Harbor High School by Honor Credit Union team members.

Honor Credit Union is proud to serve more than 80,000 members across the State of Michigan.  Providing solutions for financial success and giving back to the communities it serves remains the driving forces behind Honor Credit Union.  For more information call 800.442.2800, or visit www.honorcu.com.
