The Southeast Cancer Unit has more than $4K to put toward its cause, thanks to the fundraising efforts of United 1st Federal Credit Unions.
United 1st’s Blackshear and Waycross staff raised $4,118 they used as sponsorship money for the Southeast Cancer Unit’s annual fundraising walk earlier this week.
The credit union staffs raised he money throughout the year via a Valentine basket raffle and t-shirt sales. They rounded out the donation at the fundraising walk by selling ribs, chicken and funnel cakes.
A total of 25 teams raised a combined $94,000 at their walk this year. All the money raised helps local friends and neighbors diagnosed with cancer in Brantley, Pierce and Ware counties.
