Linn Area Credit Union Donates More than $13,000 to UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, February 5, 2021 – Linn Area Credit Union has donated $13,319.02 to University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
“We're so proud of our employees for supporting the kids at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital,” said Jenny Lorenz, President/CEO of Linn Area Credit Union, adding that more than $10,000 was donated by employees so they could wear jeans on Fridays.
Although Linn Area Credit Union’s annual golf outing to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19, several companies and individuals who had committed to the event allowed their donations to move forward, contributing nearly $2,500. The remainder was raised by selling chocolate bars.
Linn Area Credit Union consistently donates to area nonprofit organizations. “As a member-owned financial co-op, we strongly believe in providing support to organizations that help local families,” said Lorenz.
