More than 400 credit unions went casual Sept. 13 as a part of the annual Credit Unions for Kids Miracle Jeans Day event in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Credit union employees donated $5 each for the opportunity to wear jeans to work on a Wednesday. Proceeds will be donated to the credit union’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
“This has been a record year for the program,” says Joe Dearborn, senior director of Credit Unions for Kids, “We are still receiving donations, but with more credit unions participating than ever before, we’re expecting to be able to help even more kids than we’ve been able to in previous years.”
With more than 400 credit unions joining the cause, Miracle Jeans Day drew more credit union participants than 2016, when over 300 credit unions took part.
The funds support each hospital’s greatest needs, which include life-saving research, treatments, equipment and charitable care.
