Support UNM Children's Hospital, Help Save the World

Support UNM Children's Hospital, Help Save the World.

With the recent single-use plastic bag ban in Albuquerque and Bernalillo, we’ll be selling reusable grocery bags at our Albuquerque and Bernalillo locations for $2 starting January 23,2020 while supplies last. While all funds raised will benefit the Connected Academy, this initiative also supports a cleaner world. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for this important cause, and we would love your help!

In 2019, we joined forces with other New Mexico credit unions and donated $85,000 to the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital through the Credit Union for Kids program. Our donation helped support the Connected Academy, a non-profit organization focused on providing the funding to employ an accredited full-time teacher at the UNMCH Child Life wing. This initiative keeps children being treated at UNM Children’s Hospital for chronic illnesses from falling behind in school. Not to mention, the program offers the children a sense of mormalcy during these difficult times. 

Our continued efforts, such as our reusable bag fundraiser will aid in the continuation of this great cause. Thank you for your support – together we’re making things better!
