The Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation was honored to present $20,000 in award money to the recipients of the 2022 ICU Day Awards. In observance of International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), which is recognized on the third Thursday of October and celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement, the Sunmark Foundation honors individuals and organizations that have contributed their time, talent, or treasure to better our communities, living out the credit union philosophy of people helping people.
Help Us Support Homeless and At-Risk Youth This Holiday Season
This year, Sunmark's Adopt-A-Family Program will benefit the 2022 ICU Award Winner, Safe Inc. Safe Inc provides shelter and support services to homeless youth who are at-risk and may be vulnerable to or have been subjected to sexual exploitation and trafficking. Many of the children entering the shelter arrive with nothing and are in need of basic necessities such as hygiene products and clothing.
To purchase a gift for a child at the shelter, please visit Safe Inc.'s Amazon List. All items will ship directly to the shelter to be distributed to the children.
Winter Hats Collected for Pediatric Cancer Patients
Sunmark members donated more than 1,200 new winter hats to Hatsgiving this year! Each hat will be distributed to a child battling pediatric cancer. Learn more about Hatsgiving here.
