Aggieland Credit Union, College Station, Texas, raised more than $1,600 over the course of 2012 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through the credit union’s employee Give Back Days. Give Back Days are a chance for employees to fundraise one day a month by wearing jeans and a maroon ACU polo shirt. With 17 branches across the state of Texas, employees chose a national organization to receive the funds versus splitting it up between individual chapters of the organization in Texas. Credit union members are also welcome to donate to the charity any day of the year and are informed of the fundraiser with Give Back Day signs in each branch lobby. Aggieland Credit Union staff vote every December on the charity they will support for the upcoming year.

Altura Credit Union, Riverside, Calif., continued a holiday tradition last year by raising funds for Riverside County Medical Center’s Pediatrics Units as part of the 23rd annual festival of trees. Fifty local organizations, including Altura, each decorate a Christmas tree that is sold as part of the event, with the proceeds going to the medical center. The five-day event attracts more than 30,000 people each year and is the main fundraising event for the medical center and a major holiday event in the community.  Each year about $500,000 is raised with the proceeds used to purchase much-needed equipment for the children’s units, including the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Child Abuse & Neglect Unit, and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
