Evangeline Central Credit Union 001June 27, 2014

Évangéline-Central Credit Union members, by choosing and using a Credit Union iCare MasterCard credit card for their financial transactions, have contributed $1,450 to Stroke Care at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Credit unions have always been committed to contributing to their communities. The credit union recognizes the crucial importance of quality health care to Islanders, and is proud to be able to support these organizations.

“Islanders who suffer a stroke have a wide-variety of rehabilitation and health care needs,” says Barb Dunphy, QEH Foundation chief executive officer. “This donation will help us purchase priority medical equipment to assist Islanders from tip-to-tip, experiencing a stroke journey. We are so grateful for the support of the Évangéline-Central Credit Union members.”

Thanks to our membership, credit unions across PEI will be donating over $37,700 this year to various PEI health care facilities through the Credit Union iCare MasterCard program.
