“America’s Credit Union Conference is one of our most important events, and we feel a responsibility to thank our host city for its hospitality,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “By putting together these kits, we can provide relief to parents facing unimaginable hardship, even if only in a small way. This initiative is just one more example of how credit unions live the core principle of ‘People Helping People.’”
Participants met in the Exhibit Hall to assemble the kits, which include shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and other basic toiletries.
Marie Osmond, co-founder of CMN Hospitals, appeared at the conference June 28 to thank the credit union movement for its long-standing support of the organization.
