Virginia Credit Union showed its support for Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU at the VCU Rams basketball game on Tuesday, February 8.

CHoR has been Virginia Credit Union’s employee-designated charity of choice for a decade. Over the last decade, Virginia Credit Union and its employees have contributed more than $225,000 to advance pediatric health services through research, training, and programmatic support.

VACU made a $25,000 contribution to CHoR at the end of 2021 and marked it with an on-court check presentation Tuesday evening. When the current basketball season ends, Virginia Credit Union will add to the year-end contribution with an additional gift based on the number of assists made by the VCU men’s and women’s basketball teams.

“Virginia Credit Union employees care deeply about the community. For Virginia Credit Union and its employees, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU is a vital community partner, providing state-of-the-art medical care to families in need,” said Chris Shockley, Virginia Credit Union President/CEO. “We are pleased to support our local CMN Hospital and its care for families in our community.”
