Drop Off Your Drawers

The Partnership FCU Summer Fundraiser Provides Underwear for Children’s National Medical Center Patients.

August 21 — This summer, The Partnership Federal Credit Union held a fundraiser for Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. called “Drop off your Drawers.”

The Partnership FCU collected $600 in cash donations and two large boxes full of children’s underwear as part of its summer fundraiser for Children’s National Medical Center.

Members and staff wasted no time collecting underwear and cash donations to purchase underwear for patients who arrive at the hospital unexpectedly. Thanks to the generosity of our community, The Partnership FCU was able to donate two large boxes full of children’s underwear and raised $600 in cash donations.

“We believe that everyone in our community deserves value through partnership,” said Theresa Mann, President/CEO of The Partnership FCU. “We are extremely grateful for the generosity, efforts and contributions from both our members and our employees to help patients at Children’s National Medical Center. It is a true showing of value through partnership.”

Five employees accepted the Children’s National Medical Center invitation of a hospital tour to show just where our fundraising dollars were being spent.

The Partnership FCU staff welcomed the opportunity to see the state of the art technology used to help treat the kids as well as the unique services that only Children’s National provides. From the Oncology wing to the Diabetes suite, each floor was designed with children in mind. The tour wrapped with a stop by the new Bunny Mellon Healing Garden, a spacious 7,200-square-foot rooftop garden where patients can enjoy the outdoors and inspiring views of the nation’s capital.

“It was a heartwarming experience to learn what the hospital does for all of their patients, regardless if they have insurance or not,” said Theresa Mann, President/CEO of The Partnership FCU. “We are extremely grateful for the generosity, efforts and contributions from both our members and our employees to help patients at Children’s National Medical Center. It is a true showing of value through partnership.”

The Partnership FCU actively fundraises as a part of Credit Unions for Kids, the national non-profit collaboration of credit unions united to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Throughout the year, The Partnership FCU has been fundraising specifically for their local hospital, Children’s National Medical Center, the champions for pediatric healthcare for more than 140 years in the nation’s capital.

After dropping off The Partnership FCU donation, employees enjoyed a tour of Children’s National Medical Center.
