TUCSON, Ariz. — Hughes Federal Credit Union said that as part of its year-long efforts toward fundraising and collecting donations on behalf of local children’s hospitals, as part of the Credit Unions for Kids program it has made a $14,000 contribution to TMC for Children at Children’s Medical Center.
The donation was made possible through in-branch chocolate sales and cash donations made by employees and members throughout the year.
Hughes FCU in December joined other local organizations in supporting TMC for Children at Mix Miracles Radiothon with 94.9 MIXfm and collectively fundraised a total of $236,000. All funds went to TMC for Children to help fund new hospital equipment, programs and to provide uninsured and underinsured children in Southern Arizona with much needed care.
“We’re proud of the generosity and kindness of our community and members,” said Dani Gomez, marketing manager. “It’s inspiring to witness the tremendous support our campaigning efforts have received throughout the years. We have been supporting Credit Union for Kids,Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and TMC for Children since the 1980s. Ten years ago we expanded our efforts to include another local children’s hospital.”
This year, Hughes also launched a campaign to help a second local hospital, Banner Health Diamond Children’s Medical Center. Hughes collected new, unwrapped art supplies and toys at each of its branches. The campaign was kicked off by a community shred event and was supported by Hughes employees who made cash donations through in-house t-shirt sales. On December 17, Hughes made a $500 donation to Diamond Children’s Medical Center, along with 12 bins of art supplies and toys.
