Top ranking national hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, hosted their 15th annual Radiothon to raise funds for the families of patients and research. Since 2003, this event has raised over $8 million to support the life-saving care and research at Boston Children’s Hospital, one of Tremont Credit Union’s largest Select Employer Groups (SEG).
In an effort to support their Select Employee Groups, Tremont Credit Union employees began raising funds for SEG-Charitable Causes through jeans-Fridays. Through these weekly donations, Tremont Credit Union was able to raise $1,200 for Boston Children’s Hospital.
In addition to the funds, five Tremont Credit Union employees volunteered their time to answer the phone-lines of the Radiothon from 6:00 AM-9:00 AM on Friday, July 15th.
“Supporting our Select Employer Groups and their missions is one of Tremont Credit Union’s top focuses,” said Tremont Credit Union Chief Financial Officer and Radiothon Volunteer Jim Roy. “To not only support our SEG monetarily, but also to volunteer today was a tremendously rewarding experience. Answering the donation calls and hearing the stories of the families involved with Boston Children’s Hospital was inspiring, and we hope to participate again in years to come.”
During the two-day Radiothon, Mix 104.1 radio personalities urged listeners to call in to make one-time payments or become “Dream Makers” by making monthly payments. The station shared stories of the families and had live interviews with families who benefited from the hospital’s world-class care.
During the Radiothon, Roy was pleasantly surprised to receive two phone calls from Tremont Credit Union staff making contributions to the cause. Tremont Credit Union would like to thank their staff for making the contribution possible.
