POULSBO — Employees of Peninsula Credit Union (www.pcfcu.org), which has a branch in Poulsbo, raised $7,200 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which includes Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Employees bested a challenge from Peninsula Credit Union CEO Jim Morrell to raise $2,500. Their efforts included sales of fundraising products, branch competitions, and employee donations.

As a result of its efforts, Peninsula Credit Union representatives were invited to participate in the 2012 Miracle Season telethon broadcast live Dec. 15 on KOMO Channel 4. The telethon celebrated the lives of Seattle Children’s Hospital patients and raised nearly $120,000 for children and their families who do not have insurance or are unable to afford the cost of care.

“The fundraising efforts of Peninsula Credit Union employees and members, epitomizes the giving nature of credit unions throughout the U.S.” said Joe Dearborn, senior director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

“We are extremely proud of our partnership with Peninsula Credit Union and will always be indebted to them for the wonderful support they offer the kids treated at Seattle Children’s Hospital.”
