Giving back to the community is important for New Horizons Credit Union with offices throughout south east Alabama. New Horizons Credit Union raised the majority of the funds through a loan campaign whereby every loan closed during the month of October would generate $10 to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Additional funds were raised via branch member and staff contributions. This year’s the Mobile Making Strides Walk was canceled due to extreme bad weather conditions. These additional funds collected helped with the overall fund raising endeavors of the organization.

The money raised from the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events help provide free breast cancer programs and resources to women and their families.
