For the third year during the month of September, WESTconsin Credit Union went casual for kids in support of its local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals—Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Gundersen Health System.

On Fridays with a $5 donation, credit union employees could wear jeans to work. Each WESTconsin office also sold paper icons to display in the lobby. Employees, members and communities came together to raise $5,669.58. According to CU4Kids, with this amount of money, CMN Hospitals can provide one heart monitor.

There are more than 170 CMN Hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada that all share the same mission — to treat the whole child and provide care regardless of the family’s ability to pay. Every charitable donation received directly assists children and their families, and supports pediatric programs, state-of-the-art medical equipment and services that help kids battle diseases and injuries of every kind.
