Credit Union Feeding Homeless Children

Giving Children Hope is being honored this month by Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU). For every account opened in the month of August, ECCU will make a donation to provide a family in need with food for a month. Every week Giving Children Hope provides more than 1,300 backpacks of nutritious meals to vulnerable Orange County families.

“We are thrilled to partner with Giving Children Hope and their program to provide food to homeless families in Orange County. Fueling Christ Centered Ministry is at the heart of what we do at ECCU, for our membership and our staff, and this program with Giving Children Hope aligns directly to that mission. By meeting basic needs like nutrition, we can share God’s love in a tangible way that opens the door to the heart,” said Susan Rushing, ECCU’s Senior Vice President.

In 2015, Giving Children Hope began our relationship with ECCU. Since refinancing with ECCU, Giving Children Hope has saved thousands of dollars every month on our mortgage payments, which means more funding available to serve children in need. Giving Children Hope’s Executive Director, Sean Lawrence, has been invited to speak at ECCU’s chapel twice to share about the mission of Giving Children Hope. ECCU employees have volunteered to pack backpacks and this year ECCU will be sponsoring half a table at Giving Children Hope’s Gala on September 18th.

“What a pleasure it has been to work with a like-minded partner like ECCU. We greatly appreciate the proactive ideas they have come to us with to help support our mission of serving families in need in OC,” said Giving Children Hope Executive Director Sean Lawrence.

Giving Children Hope is especially grateful for the ways that ECCU is making a difference in our community across the street and around the world. Thank you ECCU!
