PCU in the Community

PCU Meals on wheels volunteers deliver more than food
Postal Credit Union meals-for-wheels


For the past 10 years, Postal Credit Union (PCU) Meals on Wheels volunteers have delivered a nutritious meal and friendly smile to elderly and disabled recipients in the North St. Paul area. Since their first delivery in July of 2003, PCU volunteers have never missed a regular Thursday delivery, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by Gladstone Meals on Wheels volunteer coordinator Gigi Fitzpatrick.

“As our PCU Meals on Wheels volunteers know, MOW is SO much more than food.  Our volunteers may be the only person our client sees all day, “Fitzpatrick stated. “The number of meals delivered by PCU volunteers is nearly 5,000. The value of the PCU volunteer commitment can’t be measured just by the dollar amount of the cost of keeping our clients in their homes or the number of meals delivered. Instead, they can be measured by the smiles on the faces they touch.  Those smiles can’t be measured in economic terms – no one can put a dollar value on all those smiles,” she added.

PCU President/CEO Brian Sherrick recently presented a check for $1,500 to the Gladstone Meals on Wheels program to help continue its good work. “We value the great service this program provides to our community, and we are honored to do what we can to support it, both financially and through the dedication of our employees, who are the real champions of this cause.”

A warm coat on a cold day makes a big difference, which is why PCU and the PCU Community Foundation have partnered with the Salvation Army’s Coats for Kids project for several years. This fall, PCU collected over 350 coats between our five locations and chipped in a $1,500 cash donation from the PCU Community Foundation. All-in-all, 450 coats will be provided to less fortunate youth in our communities and stay warm this winter.
