Children's Healthcare dedicates cardiac lab to Delta Community Credit Union

From Staff Reports

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Children’s Miracle Network recently recognized Delta Community Credit Union, Georgia’s largest credit union, for the credit union’s ongoing support by naming Egleston Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab for the credit union and its CEO Rick Foley.

Sharon Robinson, who manages the Children’s Miracle Network program at the hospital, also presented a plaque to Foley recognizing him for his tireless fundraising efforts during his nine-year tenure.

Foley said that the credit should go to the credit union’s staff and thanked them for their generous support of charitable organizations like CMN. “We have more than 700 employees at Delta Community and over the years, our employees have volunteered their personal time and funds to support charitable organizations across metro Atlanta,” explained Foley. “We are honored that our donations helped to establish this special cardiac lab for children. It is my hope that our employees will continue to be committed to supporting organizations like CHOA and CMN for many years to come.”

As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, Delta Community stays deeply rooted in the communities it serves by being an active participant and source of support through programs that benefit children both physically and financially.

Foley, who is retiring at the end of 2012, has been Delta Community’s president and CEO since 2003.

During that time, Delta Community has raised more than $1.6 million for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hospitals through community-wide fundraisers and generous contributions from board members, employees and members. Delta Community has had a long-standing relationship with CHOA and CNM through the nationwide program, Credit Unions for Kids.
