Connex Credit Union celebrates Miracle Jeans Day success!

As part of its ConnexCares philanthropic initiative, Connex Credit Union recently donated $2,000 to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford as part of Miracle Jeans Day. This national campaign sponsored by Credit Unions for Kids raises funds to help Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the country adopt life-saving equipment and perform breakthrough research.

Any Connex employee who donated five or more dollars was permitted to wear jeans to work on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. Anyone exceeding $25 also received a commemorative t-shirt. Additionally, Connex collected member donations and matched the total contributions up to $1,000 – donating a total of $2,000.

“Improving our surrounding communities is one of the core values Connex is built upon and it made me incredibly proud to witness the selfless efforts put forth by both our employees and members to support Connecticut Children’s Medical Center,” said Carl Casper, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Connex Credit Union. “Participating in Miracle Jeans Day has been an immensely rewarding experience and we look forward to contributing again next year.”
