Houston Chapter of CUs Donates $100,000 to Texas Children's Hospital

Houston Chapter

With a focus on children and families, the Houston Chapter of Credit Unions recently presented a check in the amount of $100,000 to the Texas Children’s Hospital.  Since 2002, the Houston Chapter has donated well over $400,000 to Texas Children’s, primarily for charity care.

“The mission of Texas Children’s corresponds with what credit unions represent,” says Clint Hartmann, CEO of Houston Texas Fire Fighters Federal Credit Union and President of Houston Chapter of Credit Unions. “Working together to support Texas Children’s brings us together to achieve a common goal, which is about people helping people. Houston-area credit unions are here to serve their members and their families. By pooling our efforts, we can accomplish so much more.”

Houston area credit unions, along with business partners, participate in the chapter’s four major fundraising tournaments throughout the year, from bowling in March, golf in April, volleyball in August and the very popular softball tournament and family day in September. 

“Our credit unions and business partners are involved in our fundraising events both because they want to be part of the event and because they want to help children and the hospital,” adds Hartmann. “As a result, our chapter is known state-wide for our fundraising efforts.”
