The annual Credit Unions for Kids Miracle Jeans Day event is coming Sept. 13, giving credit union employees a chance to donate $5 for the opportunity to wear jeans to work that Wednesday while raising money for the CU’s local Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

Organizers invited credit unions to order free paper icons and stickers so their members can participate as well.

Last year, more than 300 credit unions “went casual for kids,” raising thousands of dollars for their local CMN Hospitals. According to Credit Unions For Kids, more than 100 CUs from 40 states already have pledged their support for the 2017 Miracle Jeans Day event.

Credit Unions for Kids said CUs traditionally raise the most of any Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals corporate partner. As is the case with all CMN Hospitals donations, funds raised locally will stay in the community. The funds support each hospital’s greatest needs, which include life-saving research, treatments, equipment and charitable care.

“The funds raised help to light the way in helping sick children and their parents navigate through stormy days,” Credit Unions for Kids said in a statement.

Credit Unions for Kids, in cooperation with local credit unions, has worked with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1996. In that time, more than $160 million has been raised. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefit more than 10 million children each year.
