Dallas, TX: On February 2, 2022, just hours before a Texas winter storm, Neighborhood Credit Union’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, Jessie Swendig, presented Children’s HealthSM with a donation of $32,478.04.
“We are immensely grateful for our friends at Neighborhood Credit Union and their unwavering commitment to helping Children’s Health ‘make life better for children,’” said Paulette Mulry, associate vice president of development at Children’s Health. “Supporters like Neighborhood Credit Union play an integral role in helping us deliver top-notch care that makes a noticeable difference in the lives of children and families in our community.”
As they have in previous years, the money was raised by two different programs Neighborhood Credit Union offers during the 2021 holiday season. Starting in October, in partnership with Children’s Health and the Women's Auxiliary to Children’s Medical Center, the BOO Yard Challenge provided a crafty way to raise donations. For a donation of only $20, anyone in the community could purchase a BOO yard sign, pick it up at any Neighborhood Credit Union branch, and then secretly place it in friends' or neighbors' yards during the Halloween season.
Throughout November and December, Neighborhood Credit Union encouraged members to participate in the Skip a Payment program. Members could choose to skip a monthly payment on a qualifying loan in exchange for a donation of $35 or more to Children’s Health.
Neighborhood Credit Union and Children’s Health: Neighborhood Credit Union has been proud to donate to Children’s Health for 26 years in a row. More than 200,000 children looked to Children's Health for care last year, and Neighborhood Credit Union is honored to make an enormous difference with the help of its members and community.
