A give-and-go between Virginia Credit Union and the VCU Rams is making a big difference for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR). Virginia Credit Union employees have raised funds for CHoR throughout 2012. Virginia Credit Union will match 100% of those contributions and add $1 for every assist by VCU on the basketball court. So far this season, the men’s and women’s teams have racked up 384 assists. A total contribution of more than $20,000 will be presented to the hospital at the March 2 game against Butler University.

“Virginia Credit Union employees are very committed to community efforts, and they selected the local CMN Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU as our charity of choice,” said Jane Watkins, President/CEO of Virginia Credit Union. “When players make assists on the basketball court, they help their teammates succeed. As a credit union, that’s what we try to do for our members and the community.”
