Blackshear Service Center Raises Over $1,000 for Student Cancer Unit

The staff of United 1st Federal Credit Union’s Blackshear branch worked very hard over the last month in helping raise funds for the upcoming Southeast Cancer Walk. The Cancer Walk helps benefit the Southeast Cancer Unit which serves those in our community affected by this dreadful disease.

For the last several years they have filled a Valentine basket and sold raffle tickets with all proceeds going to this worthy cause. The members at United 1st have rallied behind this event and for 2017, they raised a record total of $1,017 to be donated!

This year’s winning ticket was pulled on Feb. 10th by a member visiting the branch. The winner was Cindy Hickox, an internal member from the Waycross branch. Congratulations to Ms. Hickox and many thanks to all those who helped support the Cancer Unit through this event.
