On September 11, Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) staff were dressed more casually than normal — all in support of a good cause.
Credit Unions nationally support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as part of the CU for Kids campaign. Last year, more than 300 credit unions “went casual for kids” and raised thousands of dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“Dress down day works by MMCCU employees paying $5 for the privilege of wearing jeans instead of dress clothes,” explained Tabitha Forman, receptionist. “The money collected is donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to support their programs.”
MMCCU has held “Dress Down Day” for the past several years.
“MMCCU feels it is important to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in its endeavors to enhance the comfort of a child’s stay in the hospital,” said Forman. “We have continued our participation as our way of supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and their programs.”
Thanks to credit unions across the country and the money raised, CMN Hospitals have been able to purchase more life-saving equipment and provide more services resulting in world-class care for sick and injured children throughout the U.S.
