CUs in Oregon raise 866000 for CUs for Kids
BEAVERTON, Ore. (6/12/08)--Credit unions in Oregon and southwest Washington raised more than $866,000 during their 2007 campaign for Credit Unions for Kids. The amount is the second-largest collected in the program's 22-year history in Oregon and the Washington area. The funds complete a $1 million commitment made with Doernbecher Children's Hospital to endow the Credit Unions for Kids Professorship in Pediatric Neurology. The funds also complete a two-year goal to raise $50,000 for the NICU Parent Lounge at Sacred Heart Medical Center, Eugene, Ore., and $30,000 for a family waiting room at the Family Birth Center at Rogue Valley Medical Center, Medford, Ore. "Once again, they (credit unions) have gone above and beyond for the children of their communities," said Kasey Rockwell, director of credit union advocacy for the Credit Union Association of Oregon. Rockwell is the statewide Credit Unions for Kids campaign director. Next up: credit unions in Oregon and southwest Washington will raise funds to complete a $1 million pledge to the Doernbecher Pediatric Neurosciences Research Program at the Oregon Health and Science University. The funds will help recruit another researcher to the team, secure core equipment and activate a robust lab, which will be named for Credit Unions for Kids. The group is exploring further fundraising for Sacred Heart Medical Center and Rogue Valley Medical Center.
