One hundred percent of the money will benefit children’s hospitals in the state. Idaho credit unions raised more than $1.8 million for Children’s Miracle Network in the past 14 years, according to the Idaho Credit Union League. Credit unions raised the money through raffles, holiday bazaars and ‘skip-a-payment’ programs, the league said.
