Synergy Financial Group proudly supports the 13th Annual “Shop with a Hero” Program!

Each year the Ingham County Sherriff’s Office takes 50 local disadvantaged children from the outlying areas of Ingham County to the local Meijer Store where each one of the children is paired up with a Police Officer or Firefighter and is escorted throughout the store to pick out gifts for themselves or their families. After shopping, each child is also provided with a food basket which includes a turkey, ham and all of the fixings for a Christmas dinner!

It is clear every year that these local Heroes have made a difference in in the lives of the families represented.


Synergy Financial Group is a proud sponsor of the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” Walk in Lansing, MI:

Teaming with Astera Credit Union, Synergy Financial Group joined forces with the American Cancer Society and others to help saves lives and put an end to breast cancer. The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk unites communities to celebrate people who have battled breast cancer, educate people about ways to reduce their risk, and brings us all one-step closer to new treatments and a cure. Participating in a Making Strides event is a chance to honor breast cancer survivors, remember those we have lost, raise awareness, and support vital patient programs. This year through a combined effort with Astera Credit Union we were able to raise more than $3000.00 in the battle to find a cure!
