SPIRE Staff Raise $1,500 for Gillette
Sep 06, 2018
SPIRE Credit Union employees at all 18 branch and office locations recently participated in a fundraiser benefitting Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. Employees who purchased a Credit Unions for Kids fundraising T-shirt would earn the privilege of wearing jeans to work every Tuesday in July. Proceeds from shirt sales resulted in a donation of $1,500!
SPIRE is a long-time supporter of Gillette Children’s. Throughout the year, candy bars and models of their iconic Archie truck are sold at all locations, and employees participate in various Credit Unions for Kids fundraisers such as Mingle for Miracles, Bowl-O-Rama and Miracle Jeans Day. So far in 2018, SPIRE has raised over $7,500. Since 1996, SPIRE has donated over $300,000 to Credit Unions for Kids, which locally benefits Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.
“Our employees have such a personal connection to this organization,” said Dan Stoltz, SPIRE President/CEO, “We highly regard the work being done by Gillette Children’s, and are proud to support and improve the lives of the families they serve.”
