Credit unions improve lives every day, and at last week’s CUNA GAC Telhio Credit Union received a honorable mention for the Dora Maxwell award for the credit unions extraordinary act of community outreach. Telhio CU’s support for the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio (RMHC) equated to more than 15,600 nights — 42 years — at the house for families to be near their children in times of critical injury or illness. Its efforts included a Celebrity Steer Show at the Ohio State Fair that raised more than $150,000 and the collection of more than 10 tons or $60,000 of RMHC’s “wish list” items in exchange for a free or discounted admission to the Fair. In addition, the credit union garnered nearly $100,000 of free advertising that raised awareness.
