CUs raise $10M for CU4Kids, CMN Hospitals in '13
WASHINGTON (2/25/14)--Credit unions raised $10 million for Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals through the Credit Unions for Kids program in 2013.
 
Credit Union National Association President/CEO Bill Cheney and Joe Dearborn, senior director for CMN Hospitals, shared the stage during the announcement Monday at CUNA's 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.
 
"The partnership between America's credit unions and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has truly been an amazing journey," Dearborn said. "Since 1996, when the Credit Unions for Kids program was introduced nationally, the credit union community has teamed up to raise a remarkable $120 million."
 
Dearborn noted that local credit unions and their support have left a legacy of new facilities, equipment and life-saving research at the 163 CMN Hospitals across the U.S.
 
"The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals do extraordinary work, and we could not be more proud to support what they do," Cheney said, adding, "My thanks to leagues, credit unions and all of those in the credit union community who are uniting for good to make a huge difference in the lives of sick children."
 
Under the umbrella of Credit Unions for Kids, the credit union movement is the third-largest corporate contributor to CMN Hospitals, behind only Wal-Mart and Costco.
