Through a collaborated with local businesses, KCCU has donated coffee, Herbalife tea bombs, and protein coffee energy drinks to local healthcare workers to show their support for their hard work and dedication during this pandemic.

The initiative is in appreciation of our local healthcare heroes working on the frontlines in area hospitals. KCCU sponsored the coffee and energy drinks, and the KCCU drink partners made deliveries to various departments throughout the hospitals. Hospitals included were: Bronson in Battle Creek and Kalamazoo; Oaklawn in Marshall; Ascension Borgess in Kalamazoo; Three Rivers Health; and Metro Health in Wyoming.
“For the Team at KCCU to be able to show their support and appreciation to our local healthcare heroes working on the frontlines during this pandemic was truly an honor”, said Tracy Miller, CEO of KCCU. “The healthcare workers show so much dedication to the members of our community, they deserve many acts of kindness.
