Credit Unions for Kids support the new Hubbard Center for Children

This past August, local Credit Unions for Kids, made up of credit unions across Nebraska and western Iowa, joined in celebrating the opening of the new Hubbard Center for Children. Credit Unions for Kids is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals national corporate partner. Through this partnership, local credit unions have a special connection with Children’s, naming spaces in the Hubbard Center for Children’s new Hematology/Oncology unit including lobby space, the playroom and a patient room on the unit. A generous gift from Liberty First Credit Union board member, Tom Bolton, helped Credit Unions for Kids exceed their goal. Congratulations Credit Unions for Kids! Children’s is grateful for this longstanding partnership and for Credit Union for Kids’ outstanding support of the families served by Children’s.

Special thanks to Credit Unions for Kids Cabinet members, Amy Shaw and Melissa Mausbach of Nebraska Credit Union League, Angie Schreiner of Liberty First Credit Union, Diane Cruz of Centris Federal Credit Union, Michael Bartek of LincOne Federal Credit Union and Sandi Marker and Vicki Harper of Trius Federal Credit Union for their leadership, time and dedication. The cabinet members are already focused on fundraising for a new naming opportunity within the Hubbard Center’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) including a NICU patient room, family meeting room, and a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) patient room. Their goal is to raise goal of $250,000 over the next 4-5 years with additional funds raised supporting the Carolyn Scott Rainbow House.

Many of the services Children’s provides are not reimbursed and no child in need of medical care is ever turned away for an inability to pay. That is why we are so grateful for the support of the community and amazing corporate partners like our credit unions friends. Together we are changing kids’ health and changing the future.
