CUNA Brokerage Services helps sick children
ATLANTA (12/9/09)--Members of CUNA Brokerage Services’ Senior Advisor Leadership Team recently met in Atlanta to help sick children as part of the team’s Give Back Program. Give Back allows team members to give back to communities and families in need. Fifteen team members traveled across the country to meet in Atlanta for the event.

Stewart Conover, financial adviser and event organizer, said the experience was life-changing. “We spend every day helping individuals plan and prepare for their financial future, while many of these kids are fighting to have a future,” he said. During their trip to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Hospital, team members played games, sang songs, and worked on craft projects with patients and their parents as a part of Camp Children’s, a program that allows corporate groups to interact with young patients. “Having community members come in and provide this kind of outlet for patients is great,” said Stephanie Oprea, special events coordinator at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “It allows the kids to be kids, rather than just hospital patients. These are kids who want to draw pictures and sing songs and do all the things they would do if not in the hospital.” Oprea said the children who participated in Camp Children’s with the CUNA Brokerage Services volunteers are suffering from life-threatening diseases or chronic illnesses. CUNA Brokerage Services also donated money to Camp Children’s.
