MERRILL - Employees at Park City Credit Union in Merrill spent Tuesday afternoon passing out turkeys, potatoes, and pumpkin pies to families in need this Thanksgiving. It's one of the many acts of kindness the credit union does in the Northwoods.
This month, the state credit union association recognized Park City with the Louise Herring Award for Philosophy in Action.
"There's one that's received in every state. We were lucky enough to receive the one in Wisconsin," said Park City Credit Union President and CEO Val Mindak. "We're very pleased about that for all of the things we're doing in our markets."
"We love getting involved with the communities," said Nicole Johnson, the Vice President of Business Development and Marketing Strategies. "The 'Share the Care' initiative is really kind of our bread and butter throughout the year of getting involved and doing nice things for people."
In the last five years, Park City has given away about 800 Thanksgiving meals.
"People will actually come in with tears in their eyes to pick up their meal because they didn't think they were going to have a Thanksgiving meal," Mindak said. "It makes you feel really good, and it's a wonderful initiative, so we'll continue to do this for many years to come."
The credit union calls its ongoing project Park City Cares.
