Employees met early on the morning of June 3 at Sunland Park Racetrack. The credit union’s participation was sponsored by the El Paso Chapter of Credit Unions. The Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home supports El Paso children and families who are experiencing difficulty in their lives—for whatever reason—by providing a nurturing, positive environment and teaching self-respect, respect for others, and the importance of taking responsibility for one’s own decisions and actions.


Do A Good Deed

The employee run Do A Good Deed program gives credit union staff a chance to make a difference in their communities.  Employees make donations to the Do a Good Deed program through payroll deduction, and an employee committee selects the recipients.  Most recently, four organizations were able to benefit from our employee generosity.

St. Jude Children’s Research HospitalThanks to the members of White Sands Federal Credit Union who purchased a ticket to the credit union’s annual meeting on April 27, a donation of $1,000 was made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  The credit union charges its members $5 to attend the annual dinner meeting, and donates 100 percent of the ticket sales to a community cause.  The credit union also matches the amount raised from ticket sales.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
