MEMBERS COOPERATIVE CREDIT UNION SHOWS LOVE TO MINNESOTA’S CHILDREN
Chain of Hearts fundraiser benefits Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare
The holidays might be over, but giving never goes out of season! Members Cooperative Credit Union will soon be kicking off its Chain of Hearts campaign. The campaign – an annual fundraiser organized by the Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids program to benefit Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare – encourages members, community residents and area businesses to contribute by purchasing paper links. During the campaign, which runs from Feb. 1 through Feb. 29, hearts and links are personalized and added to the chain.
The specialized services at Gillette are a benefit to children locally, so the Chain of Hearts campaign directly contributes to programs that help kids in our community.
The Members Cooperative Credit Union’s Chain of Hearts is part of a statewide fundraising effort. Through this fundraiser, Credit Unions for Kids – a sponsor program of the Children’s Miracle Network – Minnesota credit unions raised more than $23,500 for Gillette in 2019.
Credit Unions for Kids is a collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues and business partners engaged in fundraising activities to benefit Children’s Miracle Network-affiliated hospitals. All money raised through Minnesota’s Credit Unions for Kids program supports Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, providing specialized care for people who have short-term or long-term disabilities that began during childhood. Gillette is based in St. Paul, with clinics located in Burnsville, Maple Grove, Minnetonka and St. Paul’s Phalen site. Greater Minnesota Clinic locations include Baxter, Bemidji, Duluth, Mankato and Willmar.
Since 1897, Gillette has been on the forefront of medical treatment, education and research for children with disabilities. Gillette’s mission is to help patients realize the greatest possible independence, well-being and enjoyment in life.
