PORTLAND, Ore. – Providence FCU contributed $15,000 to support the “Give Kids a Voice” radiothon to help raise $75,000 for the Providence Child Center’s communication therapy program.

Oldies 106.7 FM, a local radio station here, performed the radiothon live at the Hollywood Fred Meyer during the two-day event. As a result, $80,000 was raised within the 24-hour period.

Shirley Cate, president of the credit union, was on air challenging all credit unions and banks to call in and make a donation. In addition, she offered another challenge: the highest donation given during that one-hour period would receive a $250 Visa Gift Card. The following day, Cate presented another challenge: the first 10 callers that signed up to be a Guardian Angel ($12 a month for 12 months) would receive a $25 Fred Meyer gift card.

Over the past 10 years Providence FCU has donated more than $50,000 to the Providence Child Center Foundation. The Child Center provides critical care, services and programming to some of our community’s most vulnerable children.
