Since 2009, Miracle Jeans Day has encouraged credit unions and its members to trade their traditional work attire for jeans and help raise funds for kids treated at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their area. Since its beginning, Miracle Jeans Day has raised more than $1.4 million to help fund life-saving medical needs.
All donations stay in the local community. Local Program Directors provide information about the hospital and the kids treated at those locations.
