Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, Gaithersburg, Md., staffers have donated their time to participate in the Upper Montgomery County YMCA’s Healthy Kid’s Day Celebration.

Credit Union Association of Oregon, Eugene, has hosted its first Miracles in March fundraiser and raised over $5,600 to support the local Children’s Miracle Network and Doernbeckers Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. Oregon Community Credit Union organized the fundraiser with participation from several other credit unions of the Willamette Chapter of the Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) including Laneco Credit Union, Northwest Community Credit Union, Pacific Cascade Federal Credit Union, and Register Guard Credit Union. To help raise the funds, the credit unions sold green paper clouds for $1.00 each to members and they could include the name of a loved one if they chose. The paper clouds were displayed throughout over a dozen branches in the Eugene and Springfield area of Oregon. Pacific Service Credit Union, Walnut Creek, Calif., has donated funds to purchase a computer, printer and materials needed by the Vallejo Police Activities League (PAL) for its Youth Director Council program.

Workers’ Credit Union, Fitchburg, Mass., has donated over 2,600 new and gently used children’s books to the Squannacook Elementary School Students for Books drive.

In recognition of their effort, Workers’ CU has also donated funds to be used toward the purchase of a school digital camera.
