Hospital stays can be devastating to a family’s budget. NEW Credit Union’s February Chain of Hearts campaign aims to help the families of sick or injured children.

The Chain of Hearts campaign is a statewide effort by Wisconsin’s credit unions to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This fundraiser for the local nonprofit hospitals of Wisconsin asks credit union staff, members, community residents and area businesses to remember the special people in their lives during the Valentine season by purchasing a link or heart. The campaign began Jan. 30 and will run until Feb. 28.

Those who donate will have their names or the names of their loved ones displayed as part of the credit union’s lobby decorations. Paper “links” bearing these names will sell for $1 each and hearts for $5, $25 or $50.

All of the money that is raised goes directly to fund charity care, research and equipment, and it goes to the Children’s Hospital that serves the children in our area. Links, hearts and other Valentine items will be available at all four locations of NEW Credit Union: 301 Jackson St., Oconto Falls; 717 E. Main St., Suring; 405 Pecor St., Oconto; and 870 Frontage Road, Peshtigo.
