Last week, Unity One along with other local Fort Worth credit unions presented an $88,000 check to Cook Children's Medical Center. Thanks to generous contributions from credit union staff, members and business partners, the Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions was able to continue making a difference in the lives of Cook Children's patients.   

The Children’s Medical Hospitals treat one in 10 children in North America every year. Whether they suffer from common childhood ailments like asthma and broken bones, or fighting bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer, CMN Hospitals provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids.
