WASHINGTON (3/20/12)--Credit unions have purchased more than 62,000 calendars through the CUNA Strategic Services (CSS) calendar program, resulting in nearly $5,000 in donations to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
During the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington this week, Joe Dearborn, senior director of Credit Unions for Kids, and Brenda Halverson of CSS announced that this year CSS will donate 10% of its net proceeds of the specially branded calendar to the hospitals.
This is the third year that the CSS has donated proceeds from its calendar sales. In 2010, when the program began, CSS sold 33,264 calendars; last year, it sold 29,097 calendars.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals distributes the proceeds to local hospitals located near the credit unions that purchased the calendars.
Credit Unions for Kids is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners from across the country, engaged in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
