New Mexico CUs exceed 1M goal for hospital
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (2/1/10)--The Credit Union Association of New Mexico (CUANM) received official notification from the Children’s Miracle Network that the association exceeded its five-year goal to raise $1 million for the pediatric emergency unit at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque. In 2004, CUANM was approached by the hospital to help with its major capital fund-raising program. The association’s board voted to support the campaign, and its staff agreed to spearhead the campaign for credit unions (CUANM Network January 2010). “It is extremely gratifying over the years to see the unique and creative ways our participating credit unions have raised money,” said Sylvia Lyon, CUANM CEO. “We have seen cookbook sales, Frito pie sales, revenue from coin-counting machines, golf tournaments, raffles and plenty of other methods. “These ideas really demonstrated that, when given an opportunity to make a difference, credit unions will rise to the challenge every time to help their communities,” she added. “And I think they particularly liked the idea that they would be helping New Mexico children who really needed the extra help.” The hospital helps thousands of New Mexico children annually, and the pediatric emergency unit is in full operation, the association said. Children’s Miracle Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals.
