Fund Drive Benefits Kids

Miracle Network Fund Drives Raises over 1K

Freedom recently participated in a Children’s Miracle Network fund drive! The Miracle Jeans Day-Credit Union for Kids benefit raised money for our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. Staff and members donated throughout September to benefit Johns Hopkins Children’s hospital.

Miracle Jeans Day 

The Miracle Jeans Day-Credit Union for Kids fundraiser began with employees. Freedom employees were encouraged to donate $5 for the opportunity to go “Casual for Kids” by wearing jeans. The one-day event took place on September 13. Proceeds support John’s Hopkins Children’s Hospital’s greatest needs, including include life-saving research, treatments, equipment and charitable care.

Collection Boxes in all Branches 

Fundraising continued through the end of September. So many employees and members gave that we collected a total of $1,081.44!

Sponsorships and Giveback

It’s important to us to give back. To support the Harford County Community, we provide free financial education, support local organizations, and routinely volunteer in the community. It’s all about making Freedom a special place to work and a special place to bank.

This weekend, 10 Freedom staff and board members gave back. Their work benefited Habitat for Humanity’s new Aberdeen ReStore. Rather than go all at once, staff worked two shifts. They helped in the ReStore warehouse and storefront.

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to house those in need. Home owners can get a low cost home. This happens thanks to Habitat’s volunteers and donations. Volunteers typically help on building projects. Less well known, they can also work in the air-conditioned comfort of a Habitat’s ReStore!   Learn more about Habitat’s Susquehanna’s work in Harford County. The Aberdeen ReStore‘s location and hours are online.
