BOISE, Idaho (6/2/09)--Idaho credit unions raised nearly $222,000 to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network through their Credit Unions for Kids program. One hundred percent of the money will benefit children’s hospitals in the state. Idaho credit unions raised more than $1.8 million for Children’s Miracle Network in the past 14 years, according to the Idaho Credit Union League. Credit unions raised the money through raffles, holiday bazaars and ‘skip-a-payment’ programs, the league said. Credit Unions for Kids is a credit union industry effort to raise money for Children's Miracle Network. Credit unions nationwide contributed $9,322,827 to children's hospitals in 2008, making Credit Unions for Kids the third largest fundraising sponsor for the charity (News Now May 28).
