In 2012, the Oklahoma Credit Unions for Kids committee promised to raise $1 million in five years for the Children’s Hospital Foundation through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. They accomplished this amazing task in just four years.

On March 10, Oklahoma City credit union CEOs, executives, and employees, along with OU Children’s Hospital doctors, came together to celebrate the accomplishment. About 40 attendees toasted to all the hard work put in by credit unions to raise $1,045,518.

The Oklahoma Credit Unions for Kids Committee includes:

  • Jeremy Daggs, Red Crown Credit Union
  • Amanda Martin, Communication Federal Credit Union
  • Katie Walke, FAA Credit Union
  • Teresa Carter, Tinker Federal Credit Union
  • Jennifer Lown, Oklahoma Employees Credit Union
  • Chris Sackett, WEOKIE Credit Union
  • Carrie Buchholz, Cornerstone Credit Union League

Jeremy Daggs, chair of the committee, gave a speech about the many wonderful things the committee has accomplished, as well as the amazing work the doctors do to treat kids at the hospital.

The committee is working diligently on a plan with a new goal to raise even more money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation in years to come.

This is yet another way credit unions support their communities and serve as models of social responsibility.
