San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
For the past five years, San Francisco Federal Credit Union has shown its support for breast cancer research. This year was no exception as the mortgage lender was able to raise more than $2,700 from various innovative fundraising activities it organized with its employees.
"San Francisco Federal Credit Union cares," Elaine Lee of San Francisco Federal Credit Union said. "Everyone needs to be aware and can support in many ways."
The local federal credit union raised funds through a variety of activities. At its recent bake sale, staff participated by bringing in baked goods that were then sold at the credit union's renovated lobby on Golden Gate Avenue. Staff members also got to wear jeans to work for one designated day by simply donating $5 to the cause. They also had the chance to win a pair of tickets to a San Francisco Giants' game by purchasing a raffle ticket, the proceeds of which benefited the research program.
On Sept. 9, 20 credit union staff members participated in the Susan G. Komen SF Race for the Cure. The five-mile run/walk received a very good response, with many runners and walkers joining in support of the cause.
"As a co-chair of San Francisco Federal Credit Union's Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk Fundraising Drive, I am excited that we were able to raise funds, encourage our highest-ever employee participation in the walk, and raise awareness for this very important cause that touches all of us in some way," Elese Polk said.
