Felicity Guerin, Credit Unions for Kids Liasion for the American Association of CU Leagues, said the campaign runs through the end of the year. More than 200 credit unions in 34 states are participating in the program.
Michigan participants include Credit Union ONE, Detroit Metropolitan CU, Dow Chemical Employees’ CU, My Postal CU, Thornapple Valley Community CU and Total Community CU.
“Throughout December, credit union employees across the country will encourage members to donate a dollar to their local CMN Hospital,” Guerin said. “In exchange for their donation, the member writes his or her name on a holiday-themed paper icon which the credit union then proudly displays.”
