Local Credit Unions Helps Raise Funds for NICU Crib Cams

For decades, the Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions has held annual fundraising events to benefit its local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Cook Children’s Medical Center. But due to the pandemic, the Fort Worth Chapter was unable to host the event in 2020. “The Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions Miracle Team was so disappointed that the event could not be held this year due to COVID-19, and we all wanted to seek out something we could do as a group to fulfill a need at Cook Children’s,” said Beth Peters, Unity One Credit Union and Miracle Team chair for the Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions. To help Cook Children’s accomplish its goal, the Fort Worth chapter put in place an online giving portal and created a contest among local Fort Worth credit unions. The event raised more than $8,200, which will allow Cook Children’s Medical Center to purchase at least three crib cams for the NICU area.
