Many votes were cast on First Source’s Facebook page for worthy causes around our region. The winner of their inaugural Facebook charitable donation campaign is the Amanda L. King Memorial Fund, one of their write-in candidates. This wonderful cause, helping area families who have children with cancer, works year round to honor the wishes of a young woman who was lost to cancer. The Fund, with offices located in Camden, will make very good use of the $2,500 donation. More information on the organization can be found here.
“This has been a great way to reach out to our community of friends,” said Mike Parsons, President and CEO of First Source Federal Credit Union. “We hope this is the beginning of a new way to bring everyone together to help us give back to our neighbors throughout Central New York. Congratulations to the Amanda L. King Memorial Fund.”
Stacey Borst, President of the Amanda L. King Memorial Fund, thanked First Source and said, “This donation will go a long way in helping the families who have a child fighting cancer and being treated at Golisano’s Childrens Hospital in Syracuse. These families go through sometimes severe financial hardships during a time when their lives have been thrown into turmoil. This memorial fund was started to alleviate some of the financial burden on these families so that the parents and caregivers of these children can concentrate on the health of their child. It is with the help of local business and private donations that we are able to make this assistance possible.”
First Source Federal Credit Union will be presenting the $2,500 check to the Amanda L. King Memorial Fund next week.
