Woodbridge, VA (PRWEB) September 14, 2015
Belvoir Federal Credit Union raised $907 in recognition of Miracle Jeans Day which supports the Children’s Miracle Network.
This national event promotes awareness of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in an effort to raise funds for the children treated at their facilities. Every minute, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment. With the aid of national events, like Miracle Jeans Day, contributors are able to help provide comfort, treatment, and hope to millions of sick kids.
At Belvoir Federal, the employees came together as the “Belvoir Believers” to make personal donations to this cause and wear jeans throughout the week to show their support.
The credit union created a team micro-site through the Miracle Jeans Day Website where employees could donate funds directly online. The monetary goal for the event was achieved with 113% of the objective being met. One hundred percent of the donations will be made to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
