Centricity Credit Union is a Proud Supporter of Chain of Hearts

Chain of Hearts fundraiser benefits Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare

The holidays might be over, but giving never goes out of season! Centricity Credit Union is kicking off its Chain of Hearts campaign! The campaign is an annual fundraiser organized by the Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids program to benefit Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. It encourages members, community residents and area businesses to contribute by purchasing paper hearts and links. During the campaign, which runs from January 6th through February 29th, hearts and links are personalized and added to the chain. There are suggested prices for each size of heart or chain link, but a monetary donation of any size is welcome.


This is a great fundraiser that inspires members to give because they’re helping children in our community, the specialized services at Gillette are a benefit to children locally, so the Chain of Hearts campaign directly contributes to programs that help kids in our community. Centricity Credit Union’s Chain of Hearts is part of a statewide fundraising effort. Through this fundraiser, Credit Unions for Kids – a sponsor program of the Children’s Miracle Network –  Minnesota credit unions raised more than $50,000 for Gillette in 2019. The Credit Unions for Kids program really complements our philosophy of ‘people helping people,’ and we want to ensure that resources like Gillette are available for families in our community.Credit Unions for Kids is a collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues and business partners engaged in fundraising activities to benefit Children’s Miracle Network-affiliated hospitals.
