PLYMOUTH, Minn. (November 29, 2019) — TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union employees recently raised $675 for the Hope Council on Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse, Inc., a nonprofit in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The funds were raised during the credit union’s monthly Casual for a Cause event, in which employees make a donation to participate in casual Friday. The TruStone Financial Foundation provided a matching contribution for a total gift of $1,350.

“The Hope Council is so grateful to TruStone Financial for choosing our agency to be the recipient of the Casual for a Cause funds from October,” says Guida Brown, Executive Director of the Hope Council. “We consider ourselves to be the ‘little agency that could,’ but we can’t without help from our community.
