Local Credit Union Raises $10,478 for Dell Children’s Medical Center
TruWest® Credit Union Fundraising Initiatives Support Local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital
AUSTIN, TEXAS – TruWest® Credit Union, donated $10,478 to Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas, through a fundraising 50/50 raffle and “Casual for a Cause” staff donation initiatives.
“We are honored to be able to demonstrate the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people,’” said President and CEO of TruWest Credit Union, Alan Althouse. “This year has been challenging for all of us, but it’s how we come together and support each other that truly matters.”
“We are so grateful for our partnership with TruWest Credit Union whose employees support local kids year around,” said Megan Campuzano, Senior Director of Annual Giving of the Dell Children’s Foundation. “We are fortunate to have community partners who care about the families we serve just as much as we do at Dell Children’s.”
TruWest has been a contributor to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals for almost 30 years. Traditionally, it involves a large, end-of-year, in-person holiday auction. Because of COVID restrictions, the credit union got creative with a new fundraising event that could be held virtually. Thus, was born the overwhelmingly successful 50/50 raffle, which included over 195 participants who made donations throughout the months of November and December.
TruWest’s annual Casual for a Cause donation initiative provides an opportunity for TruWest employees to donate a small portion of each paycheck in exchange for being able to have casual “dress-down” days throughout the year.
