DALLAS, TX (May 20, 2022)
During the month of April, members and staff of Resource One Credit Union worked together to collect donations to benefit children in Texas.
Donations collected in Dallas benefited Vogel Alcove, a local charity that serves children experiencing homelessness in the area. R1CU collected children’s clothing and diapers for the charity to help meet some of the many urgent needs Vogel has at this time. Resource One donated over 145 articles of clothing and over 3 cases of diapers alongside our members’ contributions.
“Children experiencing homelessness are more likely to experience chronic diseases, behavioral health concerns, developmental delays, hunger, and malnutrition than those who have homes. As employees of Resource One Credit Union, we are committed to the practical and philosophical efforts made by Vogel Alcove to help children and their families recover from the trauma of homelessness. Their approach to rewiring brains, repairing hearts, and restoring families are consistent with the Credit Union philosophy of ‘People helping People.'” Stated Yolonda Woodson, Community Engagement Manager at Resource One.
Branches in the Houston area collected enough items to benefit 200 children in the care of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This donation was one of many organized by the Young Professionals Conference held on May 9, 2022.
“We appreciate every opportunity we have to be able to help our communities. Resource One has such amazing staff that will donate out of the goodness of their hearts,” noted Elaina Pineda, Member Experience Advisor and Young Professional at Resource One.

Vogel Alcove Story
Vogel Alcove serves as many as 200 children each day, allowing them to learn, grow and thrive in a place free from hunger or trauma. While their children are in our care, our parents, most of whom are single mothers, have the opportunity to work, look for work or go to school. We give homeless families a chance to overcome their circumstances. YOU can help.
Children’s Miracle Network
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada.
