Credit Unions celebrate Miracle Jeans Day Sept. 13

Fri, Aug 4, 2017

Credit union employees are invited to donate $5 and wear jeans Sept. 13 as part of the annual Miracle Jeans Day to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 

The annual Credit Unions for Kids Miracle Jeans Day event 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 the credit union’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. To register, visit cu4kids.org/mjd

Last year, more than 300 credit unions “went casual for kids,” raising thousands of dollars for their local CMN Hospitals. More than 100 credit unions from 40 states have already pledged their support for the 2017 Miracle Jeans Day event. 

Credit unions traditionally raise the most of any Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals corporate partner, 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.
