WCCU Celebrates “Miracle Month” to Benefit CMN
Staff and Members raised $4,186.44 for Children’s Miracle Network.
Every February, WCCU joins other Credit Unions across the country to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). With the help of everyone on our staff and our members, we were able to increase our overall fundraising by over $1,000 this year. In addition to the Hearts & Links on display in our office, we held bake sales, auctioned pies, sold popcorn, battled in a penny war, bid on a silent auction, and our staff participated in a special Casual for a Cause Day by wearing jeans and CMN shirts.
Children’s Miracle Network at Gundersen Health System will be receiving a donation of $4,186.44 from our Miracle Month Fundraising efforts. The money is used to alleviate some of the financial stress surrounding a child’s serious illness by providing families in a 24 county service area in western Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa funding for:
- Respite care.
- Transportation, lodging and/or meal costs.
- Architectural changes to the home to accommodate a child’s special needs.
- Camps and conferences.
- Specialized medical equipment and services, such as wheelchairs, insulin pumps, ramps and lifts.
100% of the money raised will stay in our area to help our kids. Thank you to our members and staff for their contributions. Your generosity is greatly appreciated by many local children and their families.
