Covenant Kids is taking part in a contest, but it needs your vote.

The Michigan Credit Union League started a program asking credit unions to join with local charities or organizations in a contest to ultimately win a money donation.

Covenant Kids teamed up with Frankenmuth Credit Union in a campaign video contest. The grand prize could be up to $21,000 for upgrades to their pediatrics unit.

"It's a nationwide competition, so it's credit unions all over the United States that have submitted videos. So the ones that get the most votes win money for the charity that they've partnered with," said Jenny Bickel, marketing manager of Frankenmuth Credit Union.

The credit union and Covenant Kids are in second place. They're asking for your help to push them to the top and win the money.

"Basically, anything pediatric related this funding goes to. They apply for it through the board and the board awards the money to different things - equipment, programs - just to make sure we're staying up with the state of the art and providing the best care possible to the children," said Heather Appold, coordinator for Covenant Kids.

Bickel said winning a contest like this would mean a lot for the Great Lakes Bay Region.

"Covenant does a lot to help little kids, little babies, little kids. And for them to have funding for equipment that they don't have just means better service that they can provide to those little patients here instead of having to send them elsewhere," Bickel said.
