There’s still time for credit unions to sign-up and participate in Miracle Jeans Day, Sept. 13. To date, employees from over 200 credit unions representing 45 states will demonstrate the “people helping people” philosophy by dressing down to show their support for sick kids in their area.
The annual Credit Unions for Kids Miracle Jeans Day event, now in its’ eighth year, encourages credit union employees to donate $5 for the opportunity to wear jeans to work that day. Credit unions can order free paper icons and stickers so their members can participate as well. Proceeds are donated to the credit union’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
Credit unions traditionally raise the most of any Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals’ corporate partner through the Miracle Jeans Day program, and like all CMN Hospitals donations, funds raised locally will stay in the community. The funds support each hospital’s greatest needs, which include life-saving research, treatments, equipment and charitable care. The funds raised help to light the way in helping sick children and their parents navigate through stormy days.
