Carter Federal Credit Union, Springhill, La., held its third annual St. Jude hamburger fundraiser at the Springhill Wal-Mart in August. Carter Federal employees served $5 hamburger meals, which included chips, dessert and a drink. More than $2,000 was collected at this event and donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Connex Credit Union, Wallingford, Conn., recently donated $344 to Pond Hill School Parent Teacher Organization. The money for this donation, which is planned to go toward playground renovation, came from the fees collected by a coin cashing machine in the Connex Wallingford Branch. Connex charges a 5% fee to members and a 7% fee to nonmembers and donates the money collected to caring organizations in the community. Pond Hill PTO supports the school by sponsoring at-home reading programs, school enrichment programs, cultural programs, family fun nights, book fairs and assistance for classroom needs, including library, music and physical education.
