Help Us Raiser Funds For Doernbecher!
Credit Unions for Kids was founded right here in the Pacific Northwest. Now nationwide, "CU4Kids" has raised over $178 million for Children's Miracle Network hospitals across the nation, including $18 million for Doernbecher Children's Hospital.
Thanks to the generosity of our Fibre Family, we raised over $17,000 for Doernbecher last year. This year, our goal is to raise $30,000. Various fundraisers throughout the year have brought our total to $20,000 so far. From October 9 through November 23, we're embarking on a concerted effort to raise the remaining $10,000.
Each year, Doernbecher serves hundreds, even thousands of children in each of the seven counties we serve, regardless of the family’s ability to repay. For most of us, treatment at Portland-based Doernbecher means travelling a significant distance. That's why we're proud to report that the latest CU4Kids initiative is the building of the Rood Pavilion - a new guesthouse for families of out-of-town patients!
Our staff will kick things off the week of October 9 by sporting daily themed costumes. Join us in the fun! When you visit your favorite branch in the coming weeks, we encourage you to sponsor a Children’s Miracle Network “balloon” for a $1.00 donation. Or, purchase an adorable CU4Kids piggy bank with a $5.00 donation. On your way out, be sure to leave your spare change in the CU4Kids collection containers at the tellers windows. It all adds up!
We sincerely appreciate your help as we work together over the next few weeks to support Doernbecher Children's Hospital!
