CO-OP PARTNERS WITH CU4KIDS FOR CMN

Members Contribute at CO-OP ATMs
CO-OP Financial Services and Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) have teamed up to create a program that allows credit union members to make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) while conducting their business at participating CO-OP ATM locations.
“It is a very easy matter for our clients to activate this convenient charitable contribution opportunity for their members,” said Stan Hollen, president and CEO of CO-OP. “We encourage them to take advantage of this program promptly to maximize giving.”
CO-OP is currently working with credit unions to enroll in the program and enable processing the CMN Hospitals contribution. All ATMs directly controlled by CO-OP are eligible.
“Credit Unions for Kids is dedicated to helping sick and injured children receive the care they need regardless of their financial situations,” said Joe Dearborn, senior director of CMN Hospitals. “CO-OP Financial Services has been a steadfast partner for more than 15 years, and they have now come up with another wonderful way for credit union members to participate in this great cause.”
Credit unions interested in taking advantage of this opportunity can begin their participation by opening a work order through the client-only Extranet area of CO-OP’s website at www.co-opfs.org.
