"It's very rewarding to know the continued fundraising efforts of our members and employees will benefit children throughout Minnesota," said Don Crofut, President of the South Metro Federal Credit Union.
"We are delighted to be ranked in the top Minnesota credit unions that raised the highest dollars per member, and we are very proud of our ongoing support for local charities like Gillette."
"The specialized services at Gillette
are a benefit to children locally, so the Chain of Hearts campaign directly contributes to programs that help kids here.
This is a simple fundraiser that inspires members to give because they're helping children in our community," said Crofut
The South Metro Credit Union's Chain of Hearts is part of a statewide fundraising effort.
Through Credit Union for Kids
, a sponsor program of the Children's Miracle Network, Minnesota credit unions raised more than $41,000 for Gillette last year.
"The Credit Union for Kids program really complements our philosophy of people helping people, and we want to ensure that resources like Gillette are available for families in our community," said Crofut
