Muncie, IN—Thrive Credit Union recently held their first Thrive Member Market on Saturday, September 9th. The market featured over 28 small businesses from Delaware County, including Hillcroft Services Creativity Unlimited. Over 350 community members attended the event where they could shop and learn more about local businesses in the area.
During the event, Thrive Credit Union partnered with Hillcroft Services to raise funds and feature handmade craft items created by clients through the Creativity Unlimited program. Thrive raised $500 through vendor registration fees and a donation from the credit union to benefit the Creativity Unlimited program’s services.
“Hillcroft Services is delighted to receive this generous donation from Thrive and to be a participant in its first Member Market. We strive to help the developmentally disabled achieve their greatest potential through residential, employment and community support services. Creating artwork and selling it at the Member Market was a wonderful opportunity for our clients to sell their artwork and achieve the satisfaction of contributing to our greater community. Thank you Thrive!” said Genet Soule, VP Development & Marketing
