eCO Credit Union holds fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network

In October, eCO Credit Union wrapped up its Change for Children’s fundraiser to benefit Children’s Miracle Network. The credit union encouraged members and others to stop by a branch and give to help children and families in need.
To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by funds to support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
