AACFCU Donates $17,155 to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

AACFCU donated $17,155 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) after a company-wide fundraising campaign.  Because of the kindness of AACFCU employees and members, $10,155 was raised in donations while AACFCU donated an additional $7,000 to CFF.

AACFCU is a sponsor of the CFF Great Strides Walks in Dothan and Mobile each year, and AACFCU employees coordinate fundraisers at each location.

Kathy Scarbrough, AACFCU vice president of marketing, said, “Our employees get excited and work hard every year to put together fun ideas to help raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. If it wasn’t for the generosity of our members and local community a donation like this wouldn’t be possible.”
