Georgia CUs donate 39000 for CMN
DULUTH, Ga. (8/11/08)--Not-for-profit Georgia financial institutions raised more than $39,000 for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) through the Credit Unions for Kids fundraising campaign, which included sales of a specially designed cookbook.

Patients at Georgia’s children’s hospitals will benefit from this contribution by Georgia credit unions, said the Georgia Credit Union Affilaites. The cookbooks included recipes submitted by credit union staff and members throughout the six-month campaign. Thirty-three credit unions across Georgia collaborated to raise funds to help sick and injured children receive quality health care. One hundred percent of the funds have been donated to CMN. “Children’s Miracle Network is such a worthy charity; how could we not participate in this fundraising effort?” said Marshall Boutwell, CEO, Gwinnett FCU, Lawrenceville, Ga. Credit union representatives presented the check to Children’s Miracle Network at a LeAnn Rimes concert held at Turner Field in July. Rimes, a long time supporter of CMN, is the face of the 2008 Georgia credit union awareness campaign. She contributed a recipe for the cookbook as an extension of her support for the Children’s Miracle Network charity. Georgia credit unions have supported the efforts of CMN since 1999. There are six Children’s Hospitals in Georgia. “The support we have received from Georgia credit unions over the years has been phenomenal,” says Terilyn Walton, program coordinator at Children’s Healthcare Atlanta. “The monies contributed from this cookbook fundraiser will go a long way to help treat the thousands of children who come through our doors each day.”
