Coosa Pines FCU Supporting Children's Hospital with Donations

This fall, before the University of Alabama and Auburn University battled it out during the Iron Bowl, Coosa Pines Federal Credit Union hosted its own Iron Bowl wager, Champions for Children's. We furthered the age-old rivalry and challenged Auburn and Alabama fans to donate their change to Children's Hospital of Alabama to support their favorite team.

While Auburn snagged the win on the field, Alabama fans rallied in the most donations, with the real winners being the kids benefiting at Children's of Alabama hospital. In total, our generous members and employees donated $1500 to Children's.

Alabama Fans:   $1,004.25

Auburn Fans:     $495.75

Coosa Pines Federal Credit Union was so inspired by fans' kindness that we matched the fundraiser, doubling the donations to equal $3,000 for Children's of Alabama. To those who gave their pocket change, bought sponsor footballs, or took a guess on the number of gumballs, we are so thankful for your donation to help further our mission.
