The Atlanta Postal Credit Union (APCU) Foundation, the philanthropic arm of APCU/Center Parc Credit Union, partnered with the Associated Credit Union Foundation to host a clay-shooting fundraiser called “We’re Aiming for Miracles: A Collaboration of Generosity” from May 16 – 17.

APCU/Center Parc President and CEO Blake Graham lauded the event as a meaningful strategy for pursuing the foundation’s mission. “Our foundation strives to serve as ‘people helping people,’” he said. “This event was a fantastic way to both bring people together in an inspiring way and to accomplish life-changing things for others. We are thrilled by the results and look forward to seeing how we will put those funds to great use through our partner charities.”

Mark Waller, Associated Credit Union’s, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President shared similar sentiments, “At the event, I saw dozens of individuals gathered for a common goal – to raise money and awareness about critical needs in our community. The Aiming for Miracles fundraiser allowed like-minded organizations to identify the problem, then contribute to the solution. This partnership with APCU showcases what can be achieved through collaboration and extraordinary generosity. We look forward to making a greater impact in our community for years to come.
