Making a Difference in the Lives of Children
In 1996, American Heritage Credit Union became the first credit union in the country to form its own charitable organization when it began the Kids-N-Hope Foundation. After American Heritage President and CEO Bruce Foulke visited the Children’s Seashore House of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, he was inspired to help the program and was instrumental in the Credit Union’s efforts to establish the Kids-N-Hope Foundation to support the hospital’s needs. The first ray of hope that the Kids-N-Hope Foundation bestowed upon the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was a Music Therapy Program.
American Heritage Credit Union employees are dedicated to supporting the Kids-N-Hope Foundation because they want to make a difference in these children’s lives. Throughout the year, employees contribute in various ways by volunteering at fundraising events, participating in the American Heritage Casual Monday Program, participating in the Pretzel Sale Fridays, and participating in Food Truck Days.
Various events and promotions help raise funds to support the needs of these extraordinary children.
