On Tuesday, December 21, our community was rocked by the shooting of two local police officers. As the two agents recover and Christmas is in a few days, ELGA Credit Union has launched a way for the community to support these local heroes. While officers investigated a shootout in the Saginaw and Bristol Road area in Burton. Fortunately, both survived, but there is a path to recovery for both.
To show their support, the ELGA Credit Union Foundation for Impact created the Christie and Fachting Hero Fund to support two brave heroes who were injured while protecting our local community. All funds raised will directly support injured officers and their families during the holiday season, offsetting medical expenses and lost wages for these two local heroes.
“ELGA Credit Union is honored to serve these wounded heroes by establishing the Christie and Fachting Hero Fund,” said Karen Church, CEO of ELGA Credit Union in a press release to Cars 108. “I hope our community will join the credit union. and envelop these officers and their families in love this holiday season, by donating at any ELGA branch, through our website or by text.
If you would like to help support these heroes behind the badge, you can make your donation at any ELGA Credit Union branch, online at www.elgacu.com, or by texting “ELGA” to 41444.
