Rubber Ducks Help Raise $1,561 for Amani Center

InRoads Credit Union kicked off National Rubber Ducky Day (Jan. 13) with a fundraiser that has quacked all expectations. In an effort to raise money for the Amani Center, Columbia County’s Child Abuse Assessment Program, the credit union gave away free rubber duckies with any donation to the charity. In just one week, they’ve raised $1,561.

The Amani Center is a Columbia County Child Abuse Assessment Program striving to minimize trauma to child abuse victims through professional medical diagnosis and treatment in a secure and child-friendly environment with the goal of preventing child abuse in all forms.

“When we heard about the fundraiser and the huge response, we were thrilled,” said Beth Pulito, Amani Center Fundraising and Outreach Coordinator. “I went over and picked out a duck for each of my boys. This was an adorable way to raise money for the Amani Center, and we are grateful to InRoads Credit Union and everyone who participated.”

Dozens of different ducky designs were available during the campaign. Favorites included the camo ducky, unicorn ducky, superhero ducky, cow ducky, bumble bee ducky, and the Statue of Liberty ducky.
