Credit Unions across Virginia are once again helping the Children’s Miracle Network. Through the end of June, when you make a contribution of $5 to the Children’s Miracle Network you will receive a magnetic U.S. Flag to display proudly on any piece of metal that you choose. It’s great for cars, refrigerators, the side of your computer, or file cabinets at the credit union. But we don’t want to keep them on our file cabinets! We want you to take them home for a good cause. If you think of more places to display your Patriotism, feel free to leave it in the comments.
There are also some small cloth flags that you may take home if you make a contribution to our God’s Pit Crew Dollars For Dually campaign. Our supplies of flags are limited!

Any new year’s resolutions that somehow made it this far have just been blow away. But it was for a good cause!
Today credit unions across Virginia participated in Sweets 4 Sweethearts, a fund raiser for the Children’s Miracle Network. Credit union staff and families brought in homemade goodies to share with credit union members. The catch… members must first contribute at least $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network. All the proceeds will go to our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. For us that’s in Lynchburg, VA, about an hour North of Danville.
As an added bonus it turns out that our Member Service Rep. Stacey, when she’s not being super nice to credit union members, makes holiday baskets in her spare time. So we decided in addition to our smorgasbord of treats that we would raffle off one of her beautiful Valentine’s Gift Baskets. So far there has been more interest in that than in the sweets!
Thanks to everyone who brought in goodies including Hall’s Pastry Shop and Nestle USA who helped to supplement what the Piedmont CU staff brought. Most of all thanks to all our members who have so greatly helped out the Children’s Miracle Network!
