Yakima Valley Credit Unions Collaborate to Contribute to Memorial

SeaTac, WA. — Continuing a rich tradition of fundraising for hospitalized children, the credit unions of the Yakima Valley will make a special contribution to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, January 13.

Working in partnership, the credit unions will present a check for $29,264.90 and a plaque commemorating their years-long commitment to Yakima Valley Memorial and its young patients. The money was raised last fall during the Northwest Credit Union Association’s Roaring 20’s gala and auction to benefit Credit Unions for Kids. The funds presented by the Yakima area credit unions will support the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics and Children’s Village.

“Every single dollar raised by any credit union or group of credit unions directly benefits the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their region,” said Jamie Dedmon, Managing Director of the Northwest Credit Union Foundation. “That allows the hospitals to let credit unions know exactly what kinds of contributions will most benefit the children. Donations might support toy purchases, patient care, research or medications, and in the end all of this puts smiles on faces of the kids and their families.”

The Credit Unions for Kids charity was born in 1986 by a group of Northwest credit unions that began raising money for regional Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Their model was adopted nationally a decade later and now is the “charity of choice” for the entire credit union movement. While more than $130 million has been raised for 170 CMN hospitals across the nation, Yakima Valley credit unions alone have collected nearly $100,000 in the past decade.

“Memorial is grateful to the Northwest Credit Union Foundation for their selfless efforts to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network (CNM),” said Mary Hart, director of Memorial’s Maternal Health Services. “CNM helps support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics and Children’s Village services for special-needs children. This gift will help save lives and put smiles on the faces of sick children in our community.”
