MASH (Mentoring – Assisting – Supporting – Helping)

These volunteers are the caring employees of North Central Area Credit Union who mentor, assist, support, and help within our communities. Whether it’s calling out bingo numbers at a nursing home, collecting trash along our highways, volunteering to coach, mentor or lead a children’s program, or working a high school tailgate party, the MASH volunteers will be there rain or shine.

Kid’s Day AuSable River Festival, Firemen’s Memorial Festival, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Hand2Hand, American Red Cross and United Way are just a few of the local organizations that benefit from the enthusiasm and the energy of our MASH volunteers.

North Central Area Credit Union is very proud of the time and effort donated by all of our volunteers that benefit the communities in which we live, work and play.

The Mascot Project

A community investment initiative between North Central and the local public schools where our branches are located.  We have longstanding relationships with Grayling, Houghton Lake, Roscommon, and Standish.

The entire project is called the Mascot Project and in each of the branches it becomes the “school mascot” project.

  • Grayling-Viking Project
  • Houghton Lake-Bobcat Project
  • Roscommon- Buck Project
  • Standish- Panther Project

Our ATM’s are branded with the school logo and the credit union makes a donation to the schools for each swipe at the ATM.  We make donations to the schools as part of the Fangear event at the football games each year. We also collection donations via School Mascot personal checks, and most recently by selling NCACU merchandise in our lobbies.
