Neighborhood Credit Union Presents Children’s Health of North Texas with $60,000
Published February 7, 2020
DALLAS, Texas - Neighborhood Credit Union saw first hand what a small donation can do.
On Thursday, February 7, the Dallas-Fort Worth credit union presented Children’s HealthSM with a check for $60,000 thanks to three different programs the North Texas credit union offered in 2019.
“I’m so proud of our members who have donated,” says Neighborhood CU Marketing Manager, Rachel Pigman. “Every year I’m blown away at the generosity and support of those who walk into our branches.”
During October, Neighborhood CU sponsored and partnered with Children’s Medical Center Foundation for the BOO Yard Sign Challenge. With a $20 donation, a member could reserve a BOO yard sign to place secretly in friends’ or neighbors’ yard through the Halloween season.
In November and December, Neighborhood CU encouraged members who qualified to participate in their annual Skip-A-Payment program. Instead of their scheduled monthly payment, members could make a donation of $35 or more to Children’s Health and skip their monthly loan payment.
The new Ugly Sweater program was introduced in November 2019. For a donation of $5 or more, members could decorate a customized ugly sweater cut out and put it on display in the branch. This allowed for a fun and creative way to encourage giving back during the holiday seasons.
