Today, we’re going to applaud AmericCU, which has continued its support of local hospitals, an especially worthy effort in these trying times.
Last week, the Daily Sentinel reported that three local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in communities the credit union serves – the Mohawk Valley Health System of Utica, Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital of Syracuse, and the Samaritan Medical Center of Watertown were assisted.
As part of April’s Credit Union Youth Month, AmeriCU encouraged members to build solid savings habits and for every deposit of $50 or more in an AmeriCU Youth Savings Account, the credit union pledged to make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network. With the generosity of AmeriCU members and a Miracle Match Donation from CO-OP Financial Services, AmeriCU donated a total of $12,000. In addition, AmeriCU donated disposable face masks to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and three additional hospitals – Rome Memorial Hospital, Auburn Community Hospital, and Carthage Area Hospital – in support of essential workers during COVID-19.
“We look forward to supporting our local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals each year,” said Julie Tramacera-Miri, marketing and events coordinator for AmeriCU.“It’s truly an honor to give something back to our communities, now more than ever.”
“We wanted to show our immense appreciation to those who have been working tirelessly on the front lines,” said Gail Rizzo-Spilka, assistant vice president of membership development for AmeriCU.
Thanks again to AmeriCU for its support of local health providers.
