“CUES selected CU4Kids as the recipient of these funds because we know this cause is important to our credit union membership base, and we want to support the good work they are doing,” said Chuck Fagan, CUES’ president/CEO. “This donation will be used by CU4Kids to fund their money raising efforts, as it will make the biggest impact this way.”
