Eagle Community Credit Union, Lake Forest, Calif., partnered with DDJ Myers Advanced Leadership Institute and the CO-OP Network to raise $30,000 for Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Eagle President/CEO Bill Birnie hosted the fundraising effort by creating a program called “The Executive Leadership Series,” attended by executives from 20-plus credit unions.  The series consisted of quarterly training sessions.  The cost to attend was a $300 donation per session, which went directly to CHOC, and in turn the executives attended a full day of leadership skill building and training with the DDJ Myers Advanced Leadership Institute team. DDJ Myers donated their time and all necessary materials, so nearly 100% of all proceeds went to CHOC. After all four sessions were complete, the grand total for donations came to $15,000.  Through the CO-OP Miracle Match program, that figure was doubled to an impressive $30,000 donated to Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

eCO Credit Union, Birmingham, Ala., helped the students of Center Point Elementary School, which suffered extreme damage at the hands of tornado. Approximately 620 students were displaced as a result of the disaster, with Center Point students meeting for classes at Erwin Elementary and Middle Schools. Center Point Elementary School was left with virtually nothing.  The students no longer had crayons and pencils to do school work with. Teachers and faculty needed paper just to be able to make copies for the students.  After evaluating these needs, eCO Credit Union purchased 68 cases of copier paper, 680 boxes of crayons, 34 cases of facial tissue, along with hand sanitizer wipes, pens and pencils.
