Last month, members of the Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids Committee (CU4Kids) and the Foundation Scholarship Council (FSC) received awards for outstanding service at the Minnesota Credit Union Network Annual Conference.
The Minnesota chapter of Credit Unions for Kids raises funds for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. Minnesota CU4Kids has raised over $3 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1997.
Kim Peterson received the award for Minnesota CU4Kids Outstanding Volunteer for the third year in a row. Kim is a Marketing Specialist at SouthPoint Financial Credit Union and joined the committee in 2015. Kim has served as co-chair and has led several of the subcommittees.
The FSC strives to build credit union brand awareness and strengthen member relationships through its scholarship program. The FSC annual scholarship program is made possible through its silent auction and Dice & Ice Fundraising events.
Deb Cariveau-Rogers, Hiway Credit Union, was named FSC Volunteer of the Year. Deb is Marketing Manager at Hiway Credit Union and joined the FSC in 2011.
“Both the Foundation Scholarship Council and Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids represent the credit union philosophies of cooperation and people helping people,” said Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Andrea Molnau. “Deb and Kim have gone above and beyond by devoting their time and talent to ensuring their respective committees exceed their goals. On behalf of the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation, I would like to thank and congratulate both women.”
