Show Your Team Spirit! Kickoff Event — Oct. 22, 2014

To launch the race year, we are holding the annual Credit Union Kickoff Event on Wednesday, October 22 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at the iconic National Building Museum (401 F Street‚ NW‚ Washington‚ DC across from the Judiciary Square Metro). This is an important opportunity for you to learn about new ways to leverage the event‚ and for volunteer‚ fundraising and race coordinators to receive updates and ideas on engaging other staff and members. We are also accepting donations — children’s underwear — for the hospital (see story below).

Go On A Private Hospital Tour — Oct. 24‚ 2014

You are invited to a private tour of Children’s National Medical Center to see how your support is helping kids in our community. Last year’s tour was highly educational and inspiring! The tour is on Friday, October 24‚ from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The tour is limited to 20‚ so up to two per credit union can come. First come‚ first serve.

The hospital is located at 111 Michigan Avenue‚ NW‚ Washington‚ DC 20010. Plan to meet at the security desk in the Main Atrium. There is valet parking and your ticket will be validated by volunteer services.

RSVP (names‚ titles and emails) by Friday‚ October 17 to sturner@mddccua.org.

Participate In A Donation Drive For The Hospital

We are sponsoring a donation drive for the kids at the hospital‚ open to all credit unions. The hospital has a very specific need for underwear for the kids. This is heartbreaking. Many of these kids are part of the DC foster care system and they come to the hospital without any basic necessities of their own. The children are traumatized and when they have treatments‚ it is stressful and they often have accidents. The nurses have been pooling their money and trying to keep up with the need. Can you help and collect packages of new underwear? Here are the size breakdowns:


Toddler through XL
Children’s sizes — All
Adult sizes for teens — Adult S‚ M‚ L‚ XL


Toddler through XL (mix of boxers and briefs for ages 10 – 18)
Children’s sizes — All
Adult sizes for teens — Adult S‚ M‚ L‚ XL

Kudos to The Partnership FCU which collected 328 pairs of new underwear from its members in just two weeks during its “Drop Off Your Drawers” donation drive!

If you are going on the tour‚ please plan to bring the donated underwear with you. If not‚ please stop by the hospital at any time or mail/ship the donation to Children’s National Health System‚ Volunteer Services‚ 111 Michigan Ave NW‚ Washington‚ DC 20010.

Thank you again for your support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
