First City Credit Union donates $7,000 to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES , CA (April 30, 2019) — First City Credit Union teamed up with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) to help fundraise for its Make March Matter™ campaign.

The Los Angeles, CA-based credit union donated $7,000 to the hospital during the campaign.

Make March Matter™ is an annual fundraising campaign that brings local businesses and the community together in support of CHLA and to raise awareness of children’s health as well as support programs and services at CHLA that create hope and build healthier futures.

During the fundraising effort, First City gave members that opened a new FirstStart child’s saving account, a themed piggy bank—and donated $5 of the opening $10 deposit to CHLA.

“Make March Matter was a wonderful campaign to bring awareness to the plight of seriously ill and injured children being helped by Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,” said First City Credit Union CEO Jim Miller. “We at First City and our membership love working with CHLA and helping them achieve their goals.  We also look forward to providing a great financial start for the young people who received new FirstStart saving accounts.  We know that many children connected to both First City and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles will be helped by these generous contributions.”

Sara Hackett, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Assistant Vice President, Corporate Partnerships, receives a $7,000 donation for the hospital from First City Credit Union CEO Jim Miller.
