Credit Unions for Kids is a cooperative program with San Antonio area credit unions that annually raises money for the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio and is in partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network.

The credit union raised the money through various activities throughout the year, including annual events such as the Credit Unions for Kids Bowl-A-Thon, Play-A-Round for the Kids golf tournament, and a host of other fundraising events.
“The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio has a unique place in history with San Antonio. For over 100 years it has been caring for the children of San Antonio and South Texas. Air Force FCU is honored to support their mission, as they give proper care for families and children now and for the next 100 years,” said Danny Sanchez, vice president of marketing at Air Force FCU.

The hospital is the only free-standing children’s hospital in San Antonio and is nearing completion of a $135 million, 800,000 square-foot expansion in the heart of downtown San Antonio.
