Carolinas foundation to raise 600K for kids hospitals
RALEIGH, N.C. (9/19/11)--The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation has committed to raise $600,000 for two Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, one in North Carolina and one in South Carolina. The multi-year campaign includes an initial effort to benefit Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N.C., with a second stage to benefit a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in South Carolina, said the North Carolina Credit Union League (Weekly Update Sept. 16). The fundraising push on behalf of Levine Children’s Hospital culminates in September 2012. The plan is to renovate a rooftop garden at the hospital. The combined efforts will leave a lasting impact on the city, said John McGrail, president/CEO of the foundation. “Credit unions have a long history of being involved in community projects that benefit children,” McGrail told the Tarheel Chapter last week. Once the Levine project is completed, fundraising would commence for a South Carolina children’s hospital, McGrail said. Details of that effort and plan will emerge over time, but it will be the same $300,000 goal as the initial Levine project. Credit Unions for Kids is a fundraising vehicle for the credit union movement, benefitting the industry’s charity of choice, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. For more information, use the links.
