(CHARLESTON, S.C.) – September 20, 2012 – South Carolina Federal Credit Union raised more than $30,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which benefits MUSC Children’s Hospital in Charleston and Palmetto Heath Children’s Hospital in Columbia.
“Raising money for our local children’s hospitals is a cause our employees and members believe in and as a result we’re able to make a sizable donation to MUSC Children’s Hospital today,” said Scott Woods, President & CEO, South Carolina Federal.
Throughout July, South Carolina Federal held their annual Children’s Miracle Network campaign. This year’s Olympic-themed campaign raised more than $30,000 by selling CMN Miracle Balloons and other fundraising initiatives.
