KALAMAZOO, MI –  The staff at Bronson Children’s Hospital care for preemies to 18-year olds in need of special doctors, nurses, equipment and treatments.  The road to recovery is often hard for these patients and their families.  On Wednesday, March 15th, Arbor Financial Credit Union’s Caring Committee presented Heather O., Major Gifts Officer, and Cory R., Child Life Specialist, of Bronson Children’s Hospital a check in the amount of $3,000 to enhance programs and the experience for the patients and their families.   “This is one of the largest donations we have given to an organization,” said Tammy Phelps, the Vice President of Operations and member of the Caring Committee “and we couldn’t have done it without our wonderful staff”.    

 The Caring Committee is made up of Arbor Financial employee volunteers who select, organize and execute philanthropic initiatives in our communities The committee created a silent auction for all Arbor Financial staff. What resulted was more than just a friendly competition, but the awareness of how much employees were willing to give to support this cause.    The silent auction raised $1,800 and was combined with other funds raised through Jeans Days and an employee cookbook sale to total $3,000. The donation will benefit many of the Bronson Children’s Hospitals programs, including Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Child Life Specialist and Journey Beads. “We cannot wait to help more organizations, and spend more time with our community” said Heather Siegwart, Core Systems Project Coordinator and President of the Caring Committee “It feels so good to give back”.  To donate or learn more about Bronson Children’s Hospital visit their website: https://www.bronsonhealth.com/locations/bronson-childrens-hospital/
