Wabash, Indiana – Through the generous efforts of employees and the membership, Beacon Credit Union’s annual fundraising drive for Riley Children’s Hospital Foundation brought in over $25,000. Events in 2020 included Member Center decorating contests, outdoor Zumba night, penny wars and bake sales along with other creative efforts that were organized throughout the year to help raise funds for pediatric research and enhanced treatments which Riley provides to the children of Indiana.
“As everyone knows, this has been a very difficult year for all of us and I am amazed at the generosity of our members and staff under some very difficult circumstances with COVID-19,” states Kevin Willour, President/CEO. “We are very fortunate to have such an incredible resource in Indiana to serve our children and their families. Beacon Credit Union is proud to partner with Riley Children’s Hospital.”
The hospital’s foundation offers hope to thousands of families seeking help for seriously ill and injured children; help that only Riley Hospital for Children can provide.
