America’s Christian Credit Union, Brea, Calif., has hosted a blood drive to benefit the American Red Cross. Some 28 participants rolled up their sleeves to give blood. Flyers for the event could be seen all over town, as staff drove around Brea distributing bundles of posters. Aproximately 81 people will benefit from the blood donated during the drive. Gwinnett Federal Credit Union, Lawrenceville, Ga., staffers helped give cancer “the boot” with their western theme at Gwinnett County’s Relay For Life fundraiser. The proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society. During the overnight event, GFCU team members took turns selling popcorn, cotton candy and walking laps. This year more than $12,000 has been donated to the American Cancer Society.
