The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is pleased to join Victory Junction on Thursday, April 20 to host its first “Reach Carnival Day” at Greenville Children’s Hospital. Through the Reach program, Victory Junction will provide “carnival” games and activities in all of the playrooms for the patients. For this large undertaking, the Carolinas Foundation needs 25-30 credit union volunteers to assist in the playroom activities.

“We hope your credit union will join in the fun on this exciting day at GHS,” exclaimed Lauren Whaley, president of the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation.

Specifics about the event are listed below and also included in the flyer here.
