DULUTH, GA (January 24, 2014) — Georgia United Credit Union presented $10,000 to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta today. This donation will help fund Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Aflac Cancer Center’s in-house school program. It costs approximately $65,000 annually to run this program so every donation counts!  Some of those funds were collected in change from Georgia United and STAR 94’s Jingle Jam concert attendees in December.  Giant coin collection canisters were available in the lobby of this holiday concert at The Arena at Gwinnett Center as part of Georgia United’s “Making Change for Education” initiative.
