Financial institutions were closed in observance of the federal holiday, Columbus Day, on Monday, October 12.

Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union, like many other credit unions across the state, used the day to give back to the communities they serve in a tradition called Credit Unions Forward Day, an opportunity for credit unions to “pay it forward” in their communities.

The Alexandria team for Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union put together care packages for emergency responders in Douglas County and delivered them throughout the county, honoring fire departments, Life Link medical helicopter, North Memorial Ambulance, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Alexandria and Osakis police departments, State Patrol and others.
