ABC12 Diaper Drive gets boost thanks to your votes

By  | 

BURTON (WJRT) - (01/06/17) - The ABC12 Diaper Drive doesn't officially start until May, but Friday, we got our first huge donation from Elga Credit Union and the Love my Credit Union Campaign.

It's all because of your email votes.

Elga employees picked the Diaper Drive as its charity of choice and it beat 99 other charities across the country to win the grand prize of $21,000.

Representatives from the Love My Credit Union Campaign were in Burton for the presentation.

Flint Diaper Bank co-founder Phil Shaltz and ABC12’s Angie Hendershot were honored to receive the check alongside Cheryl Sclater and all our friends from Elga.

Friday’s $21,000 donation will buy 160,000 diapers for babies in need in our community.
