Sayre, Pa. – Employees of the Guthrie Federal Credit Union took part in “dress-down days” to raise money for the Mark Stensager Human Service Fund at Guthrie.
More than $1,000 was raised by employees who donated in exchange for permission to wear jeans to work on Fridays.
Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Chaplain Michael Hughes also chairs the Stensager Fund, which offers assistance during times of financial need. “Guthrie employees, patients and community members are supported through the Stensager Fund, so the impact of a gift like this will be widespread and very positive. Our thanks to the staff of Guthrie Federal Credit Union for their efforts.” Hughes said.
The fund has been used to help out with medication costs, emergency heating issues and other financial emergencies.
Donations to the Mark Stensager Fund can be made through the Guthrie website at www.guthrie.org and clicking on “Giving”.
