SMITHFIELD, R.I. (April 1, 2019) – Navigant Credit Union employees, volunteers and members helped raise nearly $13,000 to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) during its annual Shamrock Campaign.
Every March for the last 37 years, MDA has partnered with thousands of businesses and retailers across the country to raise funds that help send kids to MDA Summer Camp and support groundbreaking research efforts and best-in-class care for kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and other related neuromuscular diseases.
Navigant Credit Union encouraged members at each of its 18 Rhode Island branches to make a small donation and sign their name on MDA’s iconic paper Shamrocks. In total, Navigant Credit Union employees and members raised $12,428 – enough to send around 15 local children to MDA summer camps this year.
“We are proud to support this cause every year, and on behalf of our entire organization, I want to thank the local staff and volunteers at MDA for the work they do to help kids and families in need,” said Navigant Credit Union President/CEO Gary E. Furtado. “I also want to thank our employees and our members. Their generosity and willingness to give back to the communities we serve is a huge part of who we are, and I am consistently proud to work alongside them every day.”
