We are committed to the financial needs of our members as well as giving back and being an active partner in our community. Below are some community organizations that Emory Alliance Credit Union is proud to support:
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like Children's Healthcare of Atlanta across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Chris 180 helps children, young adults, and families through mental health counseling at their CHRIS Counseling Center, group homes for abused and neglected children in foster care, adoption services ,a Drop-In Center for homeless young adults, and a supportive housing program for single and parenting youth, ages 17-24, who are homeless or have aged out of the foster care system, and in home programs that strengthen families. Our holistic approach enables children, youth and families to change the direction of their lives and become self-sufficient, contributing adults despite challenging circumstances. We are excited to partner with an organization so deeply rooted in the Greater Atlanta area.
Every year, the Decatur YMCA hosts an event called the Angel Tree to give back to the children in the community for the holidays. Emory Alliance Credit Union receives a list of children to "adopt" and, with the help of our employees, provide them with gifts to unwrap for Christmas. In addition to the Angel Tree, we are excited to sponsor different Decatur YMCA events throughout the year.
FODAC is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide free or low-cost wheelchairs, vehicle modifications, home adaptations, and other gently used home medical equipment for disabled adults and children to improve their overall quality of life.
Decatur Cooperative Ministry
Since 1969, Decatur Cooperative Ministry's (DCM) mission has helped families facing homelessness settle into safe, stable homes and build healthy lives filled with peace, hope and opportunity. Today, DCM offers homelessness prevention and alleviation services along the continuum of homeless services. To do so, they partner with congregations, foundations, universities, schools, government agencies, community groups and local businesses all around the Greater Atlanta area. Each year, we collect canned and dry goods for Decatur Cooperative Ministry at our free Shred Days. Visit our News page for the next Shred Day and Food Drive.
Toys for Tots
Emory Alliance Credit Union is teaming up with the U.S. Marine Corps to help children in need this holiday season through the Toys for Tots program. Now and until December 20, Emory ACU will be collecting toys in all three branch locations. Members and non-members are encouraged to donate a new, unwrapped toy. Emory ACU staff will be donating and collecting the toys and dropping them off on Thursday, December 20th. All toy donations will benefit children and families across the Greater Atlanta area. We are an official drop site for Toys for Tots! In November and December, stop by any of our branches and drop off a new, unwrapped toy for underprivileged children in the Greater Atlanta areaGo to main navigation
