Credit Union adopts a Shelby Township roadway
May 20, 2019 – On Saturday April 27, a team of FreeStar Financial Credit Union employees and their families donned orange safety vests and removed litter on 26 Mile Road between Van Dyke Avenue and Jewell Road in Shelby Township as part of the annual Adopt-A-Roadway program organized by the Shelby Township Beautification Committee.
In advance of the August opening of FreeStar Financial’s fifth branch in Shelby Township at 56350 Van Dyke Avenue, just south of 26 Mile Road, the team wanted to get involved in the community by helping beautify the roadside.
“We were surprised how many plastic grocery bags were caught in the weeds and ditches,” said Maria Teno, one of the volunteers. “It really opens your eyes to the importance of disposing of trash properly, so it doesn’t become an eyesore to the community.”
“Credit unions are known for volunteering, and the roadside clean-up was a perfect opportunity to embrace our new community,” said Paula Rose, Vice President of Marketing and organizer of the clean-up effort.
FreeStar Financial, established in 1957, operates four branches in Macomb County. It was named Macomb Daily’s Best of the Best for seven consecutive years.
