Gift to Care Mobile promotes health and well-being of children in community
Suncoast Credit Union Foundation continues commitment to USF Health Pediatrics
Suncoast Credit Union Foundation recently made a gift of $50,000 to the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile (RMCM) Program operated by USF Health Pediatrics in Tampa Bay for the 2014-2015 academic year. This is the sixth consecutive year that Suncoast has supported the program. The gift is part of the ongoing USF: Unstoppable Campaign.
“The Care Mobile program aligns with our mission to support the health and emotional well-being of children in our communities,”says Mary Tlachac, executive director of Suncoast Credit Union Foundation. “And because of this partnership, thousands of children and their parents have the ability to heal and stay healthy together.”
In February 2006, the University of South Florida (USF) Health Department of Pediatrics partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay for the first time to bring a RMCM Program to the Tampa Bay area. The RMCM is a 40-foot mobile medical and dental office, specifically built and equipped to deliver health services to children in the communities where they live.
