Williston, VT—On Monday, March 11, Bill Smith, Senior Retail Delivery Executive, from New England Federal Credit Union (NEFCU) presented a check for $26,453.27 to Vermont Children's Hospital. Funds were raised during the annual Big Change Roundup, in which Change Bandits in Vermont collected loose change and donations from their friends, family and members of the community. All proceeds from the Big Change Roundup benefit patients and families served by Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen Health Care. Support of this event ensures continuing family-centered care in a child-friendly environment.
The Big Change Roundup began in January and ended on Monday, March 11. NEFCU staff challenged its 85,000 members to join in the fundraising, and members responded generously.
Heartfelt thanks go out to all NEFCU members and staff who have made such a difference for the patients and families served by Vermont Children’s Hospital.
