BIRMINGHAM, Ala., and TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (4/15/14)--The Southeastern Credit Union Foundation, an affiliate of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates, is donating a box set of the Emmy Award-winning "Biz Kid$" DVDs for all nine Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals in Alabama and Florida.
The program is a joint initiative of Credit Unions for Kids and the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF), which aims to provide all 163 CMN Hospitals with a box set of "Biz Kid$" by the end of April, which is National Financial Literacy Month.
"'Biz Kid$' has proven to be a great teaching tool," said league president/CEO Patrick La Pine. "By donating these box sets, we're giving kids a chance to understand their finances at an early age.

Last month, CO-OP Financial Services announced it will pay $150 of the $300 DVD set, which credit unions are purchasing through NCUF and donating to their local CMN Hospitals.
The following CMN Hospitals will receive a box set:
