Credit union donates $5,000 towards first responder charities
NEW YORK, NY (April 4, 2019) — In continuing its support for the first responders who keep New York City safe, Municipal Credit Union sponsored the 46th annual FDNY vs. NYPD Charity Hockey Game held at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, March 30, 2019. As part of this sponsorship, the credit union proudly presented a donation of $2,500 to each agency in a special on-ice ceremony before the puck drop. Both donations will go on to benefit several first-responder charities.
Each year, the NYPD vs. FDNY Charity Hockey Game raises funds for various causes including the PBA Widows and Children’s Fund; Uniformed Fire Officers Association Widows and Children’s Fund and the Ray Pfeifer Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting September 11th first responders with medical needs not covered by insurance.
“We’re very proud to be part of this long-standing and impressive tradition,” said MCU Vice President of Business Development/Member Relations Corey Fernandes, who attended the game. “Each year, the FDNY vs. NYPD Charity Hockey Game not only brings together two great New York City institutions while also drawing impressive crowds, it goes on to benefit many worthy causes within our communities. I’d like to personally thank both teams for both an exciting matchup today and their continued commitment to our city.”
Prior to the game, Municipal Credit Union joined in a special ceremony honoring fallen first responders, including Detective Brian Simonsen, FDNY Lieutenant Michael Davidson and Firefighter Steven Pollard.
