America’s Christian Credit Union ramps up efforts to promote miracles

GLENDORA, CA (September 12, 2014) — On September 10, America’s Christian Credit Union participated in the annual Miracle Jean’s Day fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals bringing the total of funds raised for CMN in 2014 to $8,000.

Since 2009, Miracle Jeans Day has encouraged groups and individuals alike 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 $2 million to help fund life-saving medical needs in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

“We are fortunate enough to support an organization like the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in their efforts to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. I truly appreciate our staff for their dedication to serving others and the community we live in,” said Mendell L. Thompson, President and CEO of America’s Christian Credit Union. The credit union has been involved in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising annually since 1998.

President and CEO, Mendell L. Thompson is no stranger to fundraising for good causes. He recently completed the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS after being nominated by Azusa Pacific University President, Jon Wallace. He was delighted to monetarily support the cause as well as call attention to the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease with two large buckets of ice water inside the fountain at ACCU headquarters in Glendora. He proudly challenged the Superintendent of the Glendora Unified School District, Dr. Rob Voors, Vice President of Relations of Point Loma Nazarene University, Dr. Joe Watkins and President and CEO of Christian Care Ministries, Tony Meggs to also complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Their participation in the challenge has yet to be confirmed.
