Meritrust is pleased to announce a $65,000 donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, made possible by members’ participation in its Holiday Skip-A-Pay program. The donation will benefit Kansas families facing medical challenges and the hospitals providing them support and care.
“Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals support families facing the spectrum of pediatric medical situations, whether working through unimaginable challenges or celebrating incredible miracles,” says Jamie Taulbee, Vice President of Marketing. “Meritrust is a longtime sponsor of this organization, and we’re thrilled this donation will be going toward helping local children in our communities.”
With Meritrust’s Holiday Skip-A-Pay program, members were able to skip their December loan payments. The money collected from the program’s processing fee provided for the donation.
“This holiday program provided our members the opportunity to help neighbors in need while enjoying a more stress-free holiday season,” Taulbee says. “We thank our members for participating in the program and making this donation a reality.”
Donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals support research and training, purchase equipment and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of the mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
