Naveo Credit Union raises over $800 for Boston Children’s Hospital through the Miracle Jeans Day initiative
SOMERVILLE, MA (October 31, 2022) — For the twelfth consecutive year, Naveo Credit Union participated in the Miracle Jeans Day initiative to raise funds for Boston Children’s Hospital, its local Miracle Network hospital. During the month of September, Naveo joined hundreds of organizations and raised funds from employees and members. Naveo then matched the employee donations for a total donation of over $800.
Naveo participated in the Miracle Jeans Day initiative throughout the month of September, but designated Wednesday, September 14 as Miracle Jeans Day. Participants traded in their business attire for jeans and their favorite New England sports team shirt in exchange for a donation to Boston Children’s Hospital. To raise additional funds, Naveo extended employee jeans to an additional day each week throughout the month of September. Donations were also accepted at the branches.
“We continue to be appreciative of the generosity of our employees and members for all fundraisers, but especially our Miracle Jeans Day collection. Our members help us fulfill our commitment to the community and we are proud to do our part in supporting our local Miracle Network Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital,” commented Andrea White, President/CEO of Naveo Credit Union.
Miracle Jeans Day is a fundraising and awareness initiative for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals to fund life-saving medical research for the treatment of their patients. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion to benefit and fund life-saving medical needs at 170 hospitals throughout the country. Naveo has raised nearly $18,000 in the last eleven years of participation.
