Denver Community Credit Union was the proud Hotline Sponsor for the second year in a row of KYGO’s Christmas Crusade, a fantastic program that was organized in 1984 by a small group of “Santa Cops.” Each year sheriff and police officers across the metro area work to spread the joy of Christmas to thousands of underprivileged children. Officers meet and select these children during their work in their communities throughout the year. KYGO’s Christmas Crusade gave all of us the chance to help these "Santa Cops" bring joy into many households in our local area by donating toys or money to the cause.
This year, thanks to our wonderful members and people from the community, we were able to raise over $2,000 in addition to toy donations. All the donations go directly towards the purchase of toys and gifts for underprivileged children in the Denver Metro area.

This is just one example of how great credit union members and members of the community were at supporting the Christmas Crusade. This was just one example. Every donation no matter how large or small makes all the difference!
Denver Community Credit Union continually strives to be involved in our community. One way we participated with our community this month was by helping to sponsor the Colorado Anti-Violence Program's annual Rooting Down, Rising Up fundraiser, which was on October 22nd. The Colorado Anti-Violence Program has been dedicated for the past 27 years to ending violence within and against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities in Colorado by providing high quality services to survivors of violence. As a sponsor of the annual fundraiser, Denver Community Credit Union was able to reach out to over 250 guests at the sold out event.
It was a really great, touching event to see what the Colorado Anti-Violence Program does for the community. For more information about the Colorado Anti-Violence Program, visit their website.
Denver Community Credit Union was excited to be part of the Children's Miracle Network Miracle Marathon. Credit Unions Across Colorado helped sponsor the Marathon, which is a 27.2-day virtual fundraising in which participants run/walk (or achieve forward motion) one mile per day for 27 days. It started October 1st and ended October 27th, 2013. The final day was for the kids. All participants in the Miracle Marathon completed an extra mile at the same time on October 27th. The Miracle Marathon helps support our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital - Children's Hospital Colorado.
One place Denver Community Credit Union team members liked to move their mile, was James Bible Park!
It is still not too late to donate, visit www.miraclemarathon.org for more information about the Marathon and about Children's Miracle Network.
