The New Hampshire Chapter, an extension of the New Hampshire credit unions that are part of the Cooperative Credit Union Association, donated $25,000 to Make-A-Wish New Hampshire. Funds were raised during NHCU Holiday for Heroes Giving Campaign.
“Through their passion, the credit unions in the New Hampshire Chapter have forever transformed the lives of children, their families, and their communities throughout New Hampshire,” said Make-A-Wish New Hampshire CEO Julie Baron.
The New Hampshire Chapter Board of Directors are comprised of eight credit union leaders and to date have donated more than $3.25 million in wishes.
“I continue to be amazed at the generosity of the credit unions in New Hampshire, their employees, and many of the vendors that work with the credit unions to help raise money for this wonderful cause,” said New Hampshire Chapter President Jonathan Oglebay, SVP/Chief Financial Officer of Bellwether Community Credit Union. “It truly is a feeling of community, and we thank all of you for your continued support of Make-A-Wish, New Hampshire.”
“For the last two years we had to make changes and get creative how we support Make-A-Wish New Hampshire. We took on the challenge and raised $275,000 in those two years bringing total donations from New Hampshire Credit Unions and their members to over $3 million,” responded New Hampshire Social Responsibility Committee Chairman Brian Hughes, president/CEO of HRCU, Rochester, NH. “Our New Hampshire Chapter has come through again to kick off our 2022 fundraising and really goes to show the collaborative efforts of all our New Hampshire Credit Unions. We are committed to helping Make-A-Wish New Hampshire make wishes come true for children in the state.”
Cooperative Credit Union Association President/CEO Ron McLean praised the Chapter for supporting Make-A-Wish New Hampshire. “The credit unions, as part of the New Hampshire Chapter, have shared a common commitment in making dreams come true for many children in the state. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the New Hampshire Chapter Board of Directors found a way to keep the true spirit of giving during the holiday season through their online campaign.”
