VACU Teams up With Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU


VACU Teams up to Help Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU

(Richmond, VA, November 6, 2017) –  With a little help from the VCU Rams, Virginia Credit Union will once again make an assist to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

Under the ”VACU Assists” program, Virginia Credit Union will contribute to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) for every assist the VCU Rams men’s and women’s basketball teams make during the 2017-2018 season.

The men’s season began Nov. 3 with a game against Virginia Union. The women’s season starts on Nov. 12 when the Rams take on Norfolk State University.

As a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU provides a full range of pediatric services for children. Over the last five years, Virginia Credit Union and its employees have contributed more than $110,000 to advance pediatric health services through support for research, training, and uncompensated care.

The credit union’s support for the hospital will be shared via live announcements at home games and on air through the credit union’s sponsorship as the Official Financial Partner of VCU RAMsTV.

Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU is one of the charities Virginia Credit Union employees selected to support with fundraising and volunteer activities. “There’s a reason our program is tied to assists,” explains Chris Shockley, Virginia Credit Union President/CEO. “When a player makes an assist on the court, he helps a teammate succeed. That’s what we try to do for our members and the community.”


A financial cooperative serving more than 263,000 members, Virginia Credit Union offers a variety of affordable banking services, loans, mortgages, and free financial education resources, with a focus on helping people be more confident with their finances. Virginia Credit Union is an equal housing opportunity lender and is federally insured by NCUA.
