Oregon, Southwest Wash. CUs Raise $1 Million For CMN
Credit unions of Oregon and Southwest Washington are reporting they raised more than $1 million during the past campaign year for Credit Unions for Kids, a Children's Miracle Network (CMN) program that benefits children's hospitals in the Pacific Northwest. The Credit Unions for Kids program is the third highest fundraising organization for CMN, behind Wal-Mart and RE/MAX International. There are just 90 credit unions involved in raising the substantial sum. Since 1986, credit unions throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington have collaborated to raise money for the Credit Unions for Kids program through bake sales, collecting money in credit union lobbies, selling candy bars and raffle tickets, and holding wine auctions and golf tournaments.
