Aldergrove Credit Union raises $20,000 for BC Children’s Hospital

Aldergrove Credit Union presented a cheque for $20,000 to BC Children’s Hospital during the 29th annual Miracle Weekend

Aldergrove Credit Union presented a cheque for $20,000 to BC Children’s Hospital during the live broadcast of the 29th annual Miracle Weekend, hosted by Global BC on June 4-5.

“Aldergrove Credit Union has been a longtime supporter of BC Children’s Hospital and each year we are motivated to help raise more money for this amazing cause. During this year’s campaign, I enjoyed watching the competitive spirt come alive both in our branches, and in the hearts of our staff and members,” said Val Mackey, Aldergrove Credit Union Vice President, Human Resources, and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Chair of the Credit Union Committee.

The ACU campaign brought in a total of $20,000, surpassing their goal of $19,000, and contributing to the record-breaking total of $20,018,608 raised by hundreds of diverse groups during the province-wide campaign.

ACU fundraising activities took place at all six branches and around the Fraser Valley. Their tactics included a wildly successful pub night, the annual BC Children’s Hospital Slo-Pitch Tournament, jeans days, bake sales, book sales, plant sales and more.

“You name it, they tried to sell it,” laughs Val Mackey. “In addition to raising money, we’re noticing that the fundraising initiatives have left a positive footprint on our corporate culture. As internal teams work closely to plan and execute their own fundraising strategies, we’re seeing them build strong relationships with each other, experience greater fulfillment, and have some fun in the process. You can’t put a price tag on building culture, so we’re very pleased to see this happening organically within the organization.”
