Go Casual with Miracle Jeans Day on Wednesday, Sept. 12

Credit Unions for Kids

Credit unions around the country will "dress down" to show support for sick kids in their area. The annual Credit Unions for Kids Miracle Jeans Day event on Wednesday, Sept. 12, encourages credit union employees to donate $5 for the opportunity to wear jeans to work that day and help a sick child in the process.

Your credit union can help raise more than $1 million for sick children in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas by donating $5 to go casual on Miracle Jeans Day.

Credit unions traditionally raise the most of any Children's Miracle Network Hospitals corporate partners, and like all CMN Hospitals donations, funds raised locally 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 sick children and their parents navigate some very difficult days.

But don't take it from us. Take it from the good people at Abilene Teachers FCU and Communication FCU who have found the experience rewarding for everyone.

"At Abilene Teachers, being able to donate to a charity is very meaningful to both our employees and members," said HR Director Jennifer Burling with Abilene Teachers FCU. "The employees loved being able to dress casually, while also being a part of a great cause! I believe members enjoy knowing that we as a credit union care about and are involved in our community and nonprofit organizations."

"Like many credit unions, Communication Federal Credit Union has supported Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for several years," said President/CEO Larry Shropshire. "Participating in Miracle Jeans Day provides CFCU employees with an opportunity to personally give to these hospitals that provide life-changing care and research. Just as credit unions are founded upon the philosophy of people helping people, our employees come together on Miracle Jeans Day to support the kids in our community who benefit from the partnership between Credit Unions and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals."

CU4Kids has free paper icons and stickers to help visually promote your fundraising drive. To register your credit union, please click here.
