Why Shoes Matter to City CU

Children in many parts of the world face daily challenges prohibiting them from getting an education, proper health care and nutrition. Did you know this is a challenge for children in our very own communities? Who would think a pair of athletic shoes would make such an impact on their chances of going to school and hopefully rising out of poverty?

In the month of March, City CU continued their random acts of kindness initiative by partnering with Buckner International and encouraging others to donate to the less fortunate children in our communities. City CU Associates and Members collected 177 pairs of shoes, 228 pairs of socks and over $2,600 in cash donations. We are so fortunate to be able to make such a difference and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Buckner collection leadership

As we move on this month, we encourage you to give a little of yourself through an act of kindness, a smile, or a few words of appreciation – you never know, you may make someone’s day a whole lot better!

A very special thanks to Buckner International® for opening its doors to us during our collection month.
