The San Jose, CA-based Alliance Credit Union—which also serves residents of New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender counties—raised more than $8,300 for the American Cancer Society, participating in the organization’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” Walks.
Alliance Credit Union, which has participated in the walks since 2004, raised a record $5,876—plus an additional $2,500 corporate sponsorship—for a total of $8,376 for the American Cancer Society. Seventy walkers from the credit union participated in walks in San Jose, CA and Wilmington, NC. Forty-five Alliance staffers and members particpated in the Wilmington walk on October 22. The credit union was a flagship sponsor for the event.
“We had ‘Pink Fridays’ at work during the month of October, where staff could wear pink shirts and jeans for a donation,” said SVP of Marketing & Retail Delivery Emily Condon. “It was another way for those at the credit union to support this very important cause and organization.”
