USF FCU donates generously to Tampa General Hospital Fdn.

USF Federal Credit Union donated $10,000 to Tampa General Hospital (TGH) Foundation recently to purchase three, high-tech UV lights to disinfect toys in the play area of TGH’s Children’s Medical Center. The lights, known as toy sterilizers, quickly kill viruses and bacteria, making the toys safe for children to play with.

“We are pleased to be able to make this donation to the hospital and are glad this will help the children stay safe,” said USF FCU President and CEO Richard J. Skaggs. “The work they’re doing at the Children’s Medical Center is vitally important and we’re happy to help with this donation.”

TGH is a Select Employee Group for the credit union.
