“We are overjoyed with the outpouring of support that has enabled us to reach a new fundraising record for the sixth year in a row,” said Laura Sterling, communications manager, Georgia’s Own CU, Atlanta. The funds will support the Patient and Family Support Services program at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, said Georgia Credit Union Affiliates. Credit unions have raised more than $63 million since 1996 through the Credit Unions for Kids program.
