Credit Union Donations
Arkansas Federal Credit Union, Jacksonville, Ark., recently presented a $67,947.91 check to Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation Director of Development Jennifer Selig at a press conference held in the main lobby of Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Arkansas Federal employees and members raised $57,947.91 this past year through several fundraising events, including the sixth annual Arkansas Federal Golf Classic, candy and cardstock sales and several Bunko events. CO-OP contributed the additional $10,000 for AFCU’s fundraising efforts, through their Miracle Match program, which encourages credit unions across the United States to fundraise for their Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. Since 1998, Arkansas Federal has contributed over $600,000 to Arkansas Children’s Hospital. All of the money donated by Arkansas Federal to Arkansas Children’s Hospital will help fund the ENT Clinic Waiting Room, which will be located in the new ACH South Wing, set to open this year.
Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union, Fort Bragg, N.C., recently presented the Warrior Transition Battalion with $4,000 in commissary and gas gift cards. The donation was the result of sales from FBFCU’s first published cookbook, Comfort Bites, a collection of recipes from FBFCU staff, members and residents of Cumberland County. The cookbook was developed solely for the purpose of supporting our wounded warriors in Fort Bragg.
