Credit Unions for Kids offers two exciting ways to help local children this fall

Support local CMN Hospitals with Miracle Jeans Day and Shop for Miracles 

Salt Lake City, UT (August 25, 2014) — Credit Unions for Kids is offering two great ways to support your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital this fall: Miracle Jeans Day on Sept 10 and Shop for Miracles on Oct 16.

“The always popular Miracle Jeans Day campaign and the new, innovative Shop for Miracles fundraiser complement each other nicely! Miracle Jeans Day really gets our employees excited – they love wearing jeans for the kids and selling icons to engage members in their efforts,” said Eileen Rivera, President and CEO at SkyOne FCU in southern California. “Having a community-facing campaign like Shop for Miracles on the heels of a fundraiser our employees enjoy so much is exciting. They are looking forward to telling members to simply use their credit or debit card on October 16 – and a donation will be made to help our local CMN Hospital,” concluded Rivera.

The tried and true Miracle Jeans Day campaign celebrates its fifth year anniversary on September 10 and will hopefully cross the $1 million mark. The Shop for Miracles campaign was beta-tested by 21 California-based credit unions in 2013 and raised $185,000, including $55,000 in Miracle Matches from CO-OP Financial Services.
