Virginia Credit Union Supports Two Charlottesville Charities

Virginia Credit Union has made two $2,500 contributions to children’s health-related charities in Charlottesville.

Virginia Credit Union presented checks to Charlottesville’s Ronald McDonald House and the Piedmont Shrine Club of the ACCA Shriners on Monday, December 16.

The contribution follows the recommendation of an advisory council of Virginia Credit Union members from the Charlottesville area.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charlottesville is one of more than 337 Houses operating worldwide which offer hope, support and love to families struggling with children’s illness. The RMH offers a “home away from home” for these families from its location on 9th Street SW.

The Piedmont Shrine Club of the ACCA Shriners is part of an international network that provides pediatric specialty care to children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. Local clubs offer transportation to Shriner Hospitals, funding and support.
