Good will gestures by members and employees of LaPorte Community Federal Credit Union led to an $850 donation to Franciscan Health Michigan City.
Robbie Masterson, CEO of LaPorte Community Federal Credit Union and Jarrod Allen, credit union marketing director, recently presented a $850 check to Sister Petra Nielsen, vice president for mission integration for Franciscan Health Michigan City, for the Franciscan Health Foundation. The funds were collected through donations from credit union members and employees during “dress-down” days, where employees could dress casually for a donation.
The funds will go toward the Franciscan Health Foundation Preparedness & Response Fund to assist in the fight against COVID-19. Donations to the fund have been used to purchase chest compression machines, oxygen flow devices to assist with breathing and recovery in COVID-positive patients, infrared thermometers for temperature checks of employees and visitors and sanitizing stations to clean equipment.
