News Release: Southeastern Federal Credit Union
Valdosta, Georgia – During the month of December, Southeastern Federal Credit Union raised $3,500 for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital® through the Credit Unions for Kids® program. To kick-off the campaign, money was raised through employee Dress Down Fridays. Also during December, Southeastern branches sold Children's Miracle Network holiday icons that were displayed on lobby "Miracle" Trees. The fundraiser was a competition between Southeastern's five branch offices, with the Headquarters location raising the most money – over $1,200.
Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) is the national credit union movement's charity of choice. While Southeastern's donations go directly to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, it also joins the proceeds donated from hundreds of other credit unions across the United States for this shared cause. Since the program's inception in 1996, CU4Kids has raised over $100 million and is the third largest corporate sponsor of CMN Hospitals. This was the Credit Union's first year participating in the CU4Kids program.
Southeastern Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution serving South Georgia since 1953. The Credit Union is owned by its 24,000+ members and governed by a member-elected board of directors. Southeastern has branch offices located in Valdosta, Tifton and Moody AFB.
