Louviers FCU Helps Raise over $5000 for the Nemours 9th Annual Help Our Kids Radiothon

Louviers Federal Credit Union, along with three other local business, came together through Forever Media to help put on the Nemours Concert for the Kids on August 22nd, in which Hanson performed to a packed house at The Queen in Wilmington. The goal: to kick off the Help Our Kids Radiothon fundraiser efforts and raise awareness about the official Radiothon event that would culminate a week and a half later.

Each business involved contributed to the funds raised which came to a grand total of almost $6000! However, Louviers FCU took their efforts to the next level in order to support the amazing work that is done at the Nemours AI DuPont Children’s Hospital, who is part of the Nemours Children’s Health System, a recent addition to the LFCU Field of membership. Louviers FCU pledged to donate $25 for every new account opened from August 1st through September 4th! But, that’s not all! The staff at LFCU also went into their own pockets to contribute what added up to just shy of $2000! The ultimate grand total for the Help Our Kids Radiothon, which ended on September 5th, was over $250,000 that will go to support Child Life at AI DuPont Children’s Hospital!

We, at Louviers Federal Credit Union, are thrilled to be partnered with a fantastic organization such as Nemours Children’s Health System, who share the same People Helping People values that credit unions operate under.

LFCU Supports UD Center For Economic Education & Entrepreneurship in Funding of ‘Economics for Kids’ Series Lesson

Louviers Federal Credit Union recently supported the Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship at the University of Delaware in funding the creation of the book ‘How Daniel Got What He Wanted’. The book is lesson three in a series of economic lessons for school age children called Economics for Kids and focuses on the lesson that people can satisfy their needs by both borrowing and saving.

Since the books distribution to classrooms throughout Delaware, it has received rave reviews from teachers and was ultimately turned into a video on the St. Louis Federal Reserve website as part of their Explore Economics series. Louviers Federal Credit Union is thrilled to have gotten to play a small part in educating children on borrowing and saving.

So where does the main character, Daniel, do all of his saving you ask? You guessed it….the Credit Union!
