PHOENIX (3/3/10)--Arizona credit unions raised $558,574 for Credit Unions for Kids, the credit union movement's program for raising money and supporting Children's Miracle Network hospitals, said the Arizona Credit Union League. In 2009, Phoenix credit unions raised $493,341 to benefit Phoenix Children's Hospital, while Tucson credit unions raised $65,233 for Tucson Medical Center. Phoenix funds help support One Darn Cool School, a K-12 inpatient education program enabling kids to continue their regular classroom studies while at the hospital. Tucson funds help the Hands On Therapy program that ensures a child is not held back in development. Desert Schools FCU raised $324,476, the most money from any Phoenix credit union for the Phoenix hospital. It was followed by First CU ($45,500), TruWest CU ($28,806), AEA FCU ($14,000) and the league ($13,779). In Southern Arizona, AEA FCU was the top earner, bringing in $14,000.
