Nathan Littauer Hospital accepted a donation this month from the Fulton County Federal Credit Union. The donation of $2,000 is earmarked for the hospital’s pediatric unit. The donation is the culmination of a campaign the Fulton County Federal Credit Union participates in called “Credit Unions Care for Kids”, the bi-annual statewide community involvement program of the Credit Union Association of New York. For ten years, FCFCU has been selling a plush toy and donor acknowledgement cards to benefit Nathan Littauer Hospital. The staff at the Credit Union sells the plush toy and explains their purpose towards helping children. “This donation is truly a tribute to the Credit Union staff and the countless credit union members who support our hospital. We are honored that Fulton County Federal Credit Union would enlist their members in such a project to benefit our hospital and ultimately the children of Fulton County.” stated Laurence E. Kelly, Hospital CEO and President. This donation will be used for the pediatric unit. Accepting the donation was Kelly Hartz, Manager of the Birthing Center and Pediatric unit. She explained, “As many families can tell you, being in a hospital with a child is a particularly stressful time. Donations like this allow us to make their environs more comfortable and therapeutic.”
