MECOSTA COUNTY, Mich. -- Larry Mero's plans to rebuild his home in Morley, and a local credit union has helping by accepting donations.

An EF-1 tornado destroyed Mero's home in Morley over Labor day weekend.

The Community First Credit Union CEO Tim Rasmussen says he's known Mero his whole life and that Mero is a upstanding member of the community.

CFCU started collecting donations for Mero, Rasmussen says, to prove their name Community First Credit Union is more than just a name.

You can drop off a donation to help at any of the three CFCU locations in West Michigan.
