First City Members and Employees Help the Kids This Holiday Season

CMN Holiday Drive
Members have donated hundreds of dollars so far during our annual Children's Miracle Network Holiday Drive, benefiting Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.  This year, each member donation is being matched by the CO-OP ATM Network.

Make a donation at our branches, and we’ll hang a paper snowman in your honor!  You can also donate by calling (800) 944-2200, ext. 0, or by clicking on the Holiday banner on our home page.  Remember, thanks to the CO-OP Network match, your donation will be DOUBLED!

Santa CEO
First City President/CEO, Terry O’Steen, played Santa, delivering Christmas presents to more than 50 kids in the pediatrics ward of LA County + USC Medical Center.  The presents were donated by a First City sponsor.

Employees Donate from the Heart
First City employees donated nearly $500 this year to Childrens Hospital’s “Holidays From the Heart” program, which provides Christmas gifts to 450 families whose children have chronic and/or life threatening medical problems.  The donations were matched by the credit union—bringing the total donation to $1,000.  Below, Terry O’Steen is shown with the Rizvi family, recipients of First City’s donation.
