Arkansas Federal Credit Union, the state’s largest financial cooperative, has announced a donation of $101,619 to Arkansas Children’s. The donation is the first of a five-year commitment that will help fund renovation of the Little Rock hospital’s Teen Room.
“It’s through the continued generosity of our employees, members and vendors that Arkansas Federal Credit Union is able to give back to our communities,” Rodney Showmar, president and CEO of Arkansas Federal Credit Union, said in a statement. “Arkansas Federal’s purpose is to serve our members and communities, and I am so thankful to lead an organization that prioritizes that purpose above all.”
Since 1998, Arkansas Federal has contributed more than $1 million dollars to Arkansas Children’s, according to a news release.
“We are grateful for the tremendous philanthropic support provided by Arkansas Federal Credit Union,” said Renee Hunte, director of child life and education at Arkansas Children’s. “Thanks to the generous support from community donors like Arkansas Federal, the child life and education department will continue to have the resources we need to provide a safe and kid-savvy environment for our patients at ACH.”
Arkansas Federal Credit Union has more than $1 billion in total assets, more than 270 employees and 14 service centers throughout Arkansas, which serve more than 98,000 members.
