Delta Community raises $61,000 for Children's Healthcare

Delta Community Credit Union recently presented more than $61,000 to Children’s Miracle Network to help young patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

The credit union raised the funds at its sixth annual Delta Community Tees Up “Fore” Kids Golf Tournament held in September. The funds included a match from Delta Community’s Board of Directors and a $10,000 Miracle Match from CO-OP Financial Services.

This year’s event was held at Whitewater Creek Country Club in Fayetteville and featured 112 golfers. As in years past, the money benefits Children’s Miracle Network and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Funds raised in 2013 are earmarked specifically for Cardiac Care Services at Children’s hospitals in Atlanta. “Delta Community has had a long-standing relationship with Children’s Miracle Network and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,” said Jai Rogers, vice president of Business & Community Development at Delta Community. “This golf tournament and fundraising effort is something we look forward to each year.

“We appreciate the support of Delta Community’s employees and business partners from all over the country," Rogers said. "Their participation in this tournament allows the credit union to contribute funds and support an organization that helps so many children and their families.”

Delta Community partners with 14 Atlanta-area Chambers of Commerce and participated in 43 major community events in 2012 to contribute more than $400,000 in financial donations to the organizations it supports.

Great Clips celebrating Veterans Day with free haircuts for veterans

Anyone who gets a haircut at a Great Clips location on Nov. 11, Veterans Day, will receive a "free haircut card" that they can give to any veteran, active, inactive or retired, of any branch, including the National Guard.

Veterans who come in on Nov. 11 can get a free haircut that day, or a free haircut card. The cards are good through Dec. 30, 2013. Veterans must provide proof of service to receive the haircut.

It's part of Great Clips' "Thank a Veteran" program.

“We’re honored to help the entire nation show appreciation for the men and women who have served our country,” said Great Clips CEO Rhoda Olsen, who is married to a Vietnam veteran. “We invite everyone to come into a U.S. Great Clips salon on Veterans Day to purchase a service and pick up a free haircut card. Give the card to your veteran neighbor, family member or just someone you notice is a veteran to thank them for serving our country. It’s one small way to show you truly care and appreciate their service.”
