Credit Union to Host Fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Posted: January 29, 2019
WESTERN WI—During the month of February, WESTconsin Credit Union will host the Chain of Hearts fundraiser in support of its local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals—Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and CMN Hospitals at Gundersen Health System! Members are invited to show their support of CMN Hospitals by purchasing a paper chain link for $1, small paper heart for $5 or Wall of Fame paper heart for $25 at their local WESTconsin office, where the links and hearts will be proudly displayed in our lobbies. Typically over $9,000 is raised for CMN Hospitals.
There are more than 170 CMN Hospitals throughout the United States and Canada that all share the same mission—to treat the whole child and provide care regardless of the family's ability to pay. Every charitable donation received directly assists children and their families, and supports pediatric programs, state-of-the-art medical equipment and services that help kids battle diseases and injuries of every kind.
At Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN—one of two CMN Hospitals WESTconsin supports within its field of membership—funds are used for state-of-the-art treatments and vital services for kids with the most complex needs in pediatric medicine. It also funds care for patients who are uninsured or under-insured, ensuring Gillette will never turn a child away because of a family’s inability to pay for treatment.

Funds are additionally used to meet the individual healthcare needs of local children and their families.
