San Diego County Credit Union has been a community leader for more than 75 years and is a proud supporter of Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego.
Since 1986, SDCCU® has contributed more than $300,000 to support programs and services at the Hospital, which include the Chadwick Center for Children and Families, the Helen Bernardy Center for Medically Fragile Children, Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary Unit events, the Nephrology (Kidney) Division and the Acute Care Pavilion.
SDCCU® has also been the presenting sponsor of the Shamu & You Family Walk for Rady Children’s since its inception in 2007. They go one step further by encouraging their employees and members to participate as part of Team SDCCU.® In the month leading up to the Walk, they also encourage their members to purchase fundraising icons at each of their 36 branch locations. The combined member and employee contributions to Team SDCCU® to date is more than $70,000.
Since 2010, SDCCU® has hosted a winter toy drive for Rady Children’s patients, collecting more than 1,500 toys, games and arts & crafts each year. In 2014, they launched the “A Week to Donate” campaign, in which they not only fundraised for the Walk, but became the platinum sponsor of U-T Kids’ NewsDay, sold the papers in each of their branches, and donated iPads in support of the paper’s student essay contest.
Additionally, SDCCU supports the Credit Union SACTOWN10 race in Sacramento, in which their employees participate in the race and also raise funds for Rady Children’s.
The generous support of donors like SDCCU enables Rady Children’s to focus on groundbreaking research and innovative treatments, while providing the compassionate care that is integral to our healing environment.
