Greater Iowa Campaign Allows Members to Give Back to Local Organizations

posted November 23, 2015 in Press Releases

Two Central Iowa-based non-profit organizations have each received a $250 donation match from Greater Iowa Credit Union through their Spend with Care campaign. During each month of the campaign, which kicked off on August 1st, members who use their debit card at least 20 times are automatically entered to win $250, plus receive the opportunity to make a $250 donation toward their favorite non-profit organization.

Children’s Cancer Connection was the first recipient organization nominated by Greater Iowa member Henry Kaufmann of Ames. Children’s Cancer Connection is a nonprofit based in Des Moines helping all pediatric patients and their families who may be diagnosed, treated, or lives in Iowa. They support the entire family, the entire journey through programs and services which are provided at little cost or free for families.

The Child Abuse Prevention Council of Warren County was the second recipient organization nominated by Greater Iowa members Scott and Maxine Irish of Indianola. The Child Abuse Prevention Council operates the Wee Care Respite Nursery, the Young Parents information and support program and a Sexual Abuse Prevention Program in Warren County. The Council also coordinates community awareness about child abuse and the importance of prevention.

The campaign is currently set up to run through the end of the year. Three more organizations will be selected to receive donations during that time. More information about Spend with Care can be found here. Greater Iowa Credit Union is headquartered in Ames and has locations in Ames, Des Moines, West Des Moines, Indianola and Denison.
