Middletown, Pa. (July 16, 2014) – New Year’s resolutions can be difficult to maintain, but Mid-Atlantic Corporate Federal Credit Union and its family of companies (Mid-Atlantic Corporate) are holding fast to a resolution for 2014 to raise money and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals), their patients and their families.
Mid-Atlantic Corporate has not only participated in many of CMN Hospitals’ events, but it has also created its own campaigns to garner monetary donations and bring awareness to their community.
For example, in 2014, Mid-Atlantic Corporate planted a community garden with the intention of selling the produce to employees and donating all the funds to Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. The garden will be tended by the Corporate’s employees until the vegetables are able to be harvested.
In addition, Mid-Atlantic Corporate has joined CMN Hospitals for the annual egg hunt at the Hershey Stadium, Children’s Miracle Network Telethon and Chocolate Miracle 5k Race.
Nine of Mid-Atlantic Corporate’s employees participated in this year’s Egg Stuffing Party, in which they helped The Hershey Company stuff Easter eggs for its annual egg hunt to benefit CMN Hospitals at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
Staff volunteered their time at the CMN Hospitals Telethon on May 31 by manning the phone bank and taking donations from callers. During the telethon, two employees presented
Mid-Atlantic Corporate’s 2013 donation check of $15,908. The money was raised during last year’s charity golf tournament, Miracle Jeans Day and International Credit Union Day.
On June 21, Mid-Atlantic Corporate employees collected shoe tags from runners at the Chocolate Miracle 5k Race finish line to record their race times. The proceeds from this event went to Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
The Corporate has been able to lend so much time and effort to CMN Hospitals due in part to its CMN Hospitals 2014 impact plan. With the integration of the impact plan, Mid-Atlantic Corporate has provided information to its staff, as well as member credit unions regarding the importance of CMN Hospitals. The Corporate is also focused on educating credit unions on the Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) brand, which has allowed the credit union movement to become one of the largest corporate contributors to CMN Hospitals.
“Overall, the objective of the impact plan is to increase awareness and financial support of CMN Hospitals,” said Erin Doan, Administration and Community Relations Director. “This plan is a large part of Mid-Atlantic Corporate’s strategic initiative to bring our employees and credit union members into deeper collaboration and have a greater impact on the communities we serve,”
By implementing the impact plan and raising awareness, Mid-Atlantic Corporate has raised $12,492.81 for CMN Hospitals in the first half of 2014.
