HELP SAVE A LIFE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Several CUs Join 'CU4Kids' Campaign
Fourteen credit unions in California have ordered their CU4Kids "holiday icons," joining dozens of other credit unions across the nation in raising money for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.

When your credit union participates in a Credit Unions for Kids fundraiser, every dollar raised goes to help children in the local community—and every dollar makes a big difference in the life of a sick kid.

The Holiday Icon campaign is an easy, turnkey way for your credit union and members to rally behind a great cause which directly helps kids in your community.

The concept is simple: your staff invites members to donate a dollar, and in exchange, your members get to write their name on a paper icon which you proudly display in your branch this winter season.

To get started, visit www.cu4kids.org/holidayicons, and click on Order Your FREE Icons Now to choose your favorite winter shape!

The following credit unions in California have already ordered their icons:

  • California Community Credit Union
  • CoastHills Federal Credit Union
  • Credit Union of Southern California
  • Financial Partners Credit Union
  • Health Associates Federal Credit Union
  • McKesson Employees' Federal Credit Union
  • Patelco Credit Union
  • Schools Federal Credit Union
  • SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union
  • Siskiyou Central Credit Union
  • SkyOne Federal Credit Union
  • South Western Federal Credit Union
  • United Health CU
  • Water and Power Community Credit Union
