Casual for a cause
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – On Sept. 11, Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) staff were dressed more casually than normal – all in support of a good cause.
Credit unions nationally support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as part of the “CU for Kids campaign.” Last year, more than 300 credit unions “went casual for kids” and raised thousands of dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“Dress down day works by MMCCU employees paying $5 for the privilege of wearing jeans instead of dress clothes,” explained Tabitha Forman, MMCCU receptionist. “The money collected is donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to support their programs.”
MMCCU has held “Dress Down Day” for the past several years.
“MMCCU feels it is important to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in its endeavors to enhance the comfort of a child’s stay in the hospital,” said Forman. “We have continued our participation as our way of supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and their programs.”
