NAFCU Partners With Project Night Night to Help Sick Children in Boston
BOSTON, MA (July 11, 2013) — The National Association of Federal Credit Unions’ (NAFCU) 46th Annual Conference and Solutions Expo has partnered with Project Night Night to assemble hundreds of tote bags for sick children in the Boston area.
Co-Op Financial Services, Credit Control, LLC, and Money Concepts are sponsoring the bags, which each contain a stuffed animal, a blanket and a book. Attendees of the conference will participate in filling the bags and writing a special note to the child who receives the bag. The bags will be donated through the Children’s Miracle Network, an international nonprofit, to sick children at Boston Children’s Hospital and Martha Eliot Health Center, a facility operated by Boston Children’s Hospital.
“Credit unions naturally enjoy giving back to their communities, and helping sick children in Boston is a great way for our attendees to thank the city of Boston for being NAFCU’s annual conference host,” said Lisa Cox, NAFCU director of events and education. “Project Night Night and Children’s Miracle Network do amazing work for children and we’re happy to work with them again this year.”
Based in San Francisco, Calif., Project Night Night is an innovative not-for-profit organization that annually equips 25,000 homeless children across the country with the basic nighttime essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued. The project also sets a foundation for lasting change by providing meaningful, hands-on volunteer opportunities to thousands of individuals and hundreds of organizations each year.
NAFCU’s 46th Annual Conference and Solutions Expo (www.nafcu-annual.org) continues through Friday at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.
