Trius Federal Credit Union was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award and Mary Lynn Vaccaro was given the CU4Kids Champion Award at this year’s Annual Meeting and Convention.
Trius FCU has been a champion for Credit Unions for Kids for many years. In 2017 the credit union raised .45 cents per member totaling $5,072 for Children’s Hospital and Medical Center through fundraisers in their credit union which included a Soccer Golf tournament, Dessert Bar, Icon sales, door hanger sales, member appreciation events, worlds of fun sales, Jeans days, Santa letters, candy bar sales, reusable bag sales, Cookbooks, along with other internal fundraising all year long. They do a fabulous job promoting CU4Kids through their website, social media, posters and flyers, and newsletter articles.
Mary Lynn Vaccaro took home the first CU4Kids Champion Award. Under her leadership, Family Focus FCU has received the gold award for fundraising efforts 7 times, the outstanding achievement award 6 times, and was recognized as the first member of the NCUL CMN Hall of Fame. She has helped their credit union raise over $35,000 in 13 years. Mary Lynn truly goes above and beyond to help raise money for CMN and CU4Kids.
Congratulations to Trius Federal Credit Union and Mary Lynn Vaccaro!
