Credit Unions for Kids will be receiving a healthy donation from Los Angeles-area credit union members on International Credit Union Day.
Xceed Financial is celebrating by donating 25 cents to Credit Unions for Kids each time a member swipes their debit or credit card on Thursday. Credit Unions for Kids is a nationwide alliance of credit unions supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The $751 million credit union based in El Segundo, Calif., is joining three other California credit unions – the $340 million SkyOne FCU in Hawthorne, the $2.5 billion Wescom CU in Pasadena and the $1.1 billion California CU in Glendale – in the effort.
Children’s Miracle Network is the world’s largest children’s charity, supporting 170 hospitals in the United States and Canada. The donations will go directly to local hospitals to fund life-saving research and technologies.
“It’s just another way to give back to the Children’s Netwok,” said Astrid Rives, chief marketing officer for SkyOne. “International Credit Union Day is the perfect day for our members and employees to help those in need.”
