Raiz Federal Credit Union and El Paso Children’s Hospital recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of the El Paso Children’s Hospital Spirit Debit Card with a press conference held in the El Paso Children’s Hospital lobby on November 17, 2023.
During the conference, Raiz proudly announced a $10,000 donation to the El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation, highlighting its dedication to investing in the community’s well-being. Raiz partnered with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in October 2022 to introduce the El Paso Children’s Hospital Spirit Debit Card, a unique community give-back program exclusively available at Raiz.
For every non-PIN transaction made using the El Paso Children’s Hospital Spirit Debit Card, Raiz donates $0.05 to the organization. These contributions support the purchase of equipment, tools, family care grants, and resources required to provide the best care for children and their families in the community. Alexa Velazquez, Program Director of the El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation, encouraged participation, “It may not sound like a lot, but when hundreds of cards are generating thousands of transactions, the money starts pouring into those that truly need it. I urge you to take action and join us in making a difference today.”
In addition to the donations made by non-PIN transactions, Raiz has made the commitment to match all donations for the next three years, further amplifying the impact on pediatric care. “We envision a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, especially our children” spoke Alejandra Loeza, Marketing Manager for Raiz FCU, “This initiative is about making a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need it most.”
The EPCH Spirit Debit Card is an excellent way for anyone in the community to actively give back and support this local non-profit without paying out-of-pocket or making changes to their budget. The Spirit Debit Card program is exclusive to Raiz account holders, with only a one-time $5 fee for the card of their choice. Click here to learn more about the EPCH Spirit Debit Card.
