"The six-figure amount donated to CMN Hospitals during THINK 15 is a testimony to the people-helping-people ethic of credit unions," said Stan Hollen, President/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services (www.co-opfs.org), Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. "It's not just a slogan; people in this industry really are committed to the well-being of others."
"TNS is focused on supporting organizations that help provide a brighter future for children," said Mike Keegan, Chief Executive Officer of TNS, Reston, Va. "We initially became involved with CMN Hospitals after seeing the passion of CO-OP and its credit union members for this important cause. We look forward to continuing our support of CMN Hospitals."
A tradition of the THINK conferences, the 2015 meeting included charitable events for attendees on May 5 and May 8. Activities included a golf tournament, a cog railway trip up Pikes Peak and Miracle Jeans Day. The amount contributed by participants totaled $7,500.

A further contribution announced during the final session was $5,000 from Saylent of Franklin, Mass.
TNS concluded the final session by presenting their own check for $77,500 to CMN Hospitals.
