Langley supports a wide variety of programs at CHKD including the neonatal intensive care unit, the child abuse center and its new mental health initiatives. Total 2018 support was $48,885. Additionally, Langley employees invest personally through their involvement on advisory boards, volunteering at special events and the superhero-themed care packages compiled at an internal all-staff event in October.
"Langley Federal Credit Union and Langley for Families philanthropic support provided new mothers' custom swaddles sized specially for their premature babies, built a Pulmonary Function Test room for our cystic fibrosis patients, supplied arts and crafts to bring out the superhero in children playing in our hospital playrooms and offered comfort to families whose children are struggling with mental health diagnoses," said Lauren Kiger, CHKD director of corporate relations. "Philanthropic leaders like Langley ensure that children remain kids when they are hospitalized and allows CHKD to care for every child in our community, regardless of their family's ability to pay. More than that, Langley's employees donate their time and talents to the hospital volunteer program, events like Radiothon and advisory boards. On behalf of our patients and their families, doctors, nurses and staff – thank you. We are proud to partner with Langley Federal Credit Union for life!"
