Chesapeake Cancer Alliance Wraps Up Holiday Gifts With Freedom Federal Credit Union Sponsorship


In the continued partnership with Chesapeake Cancer Alliance’s (CCA) efforts to support Cancer LifeNet at The Patricia D. and M. Scot Kaufman Cancer Center, Freedom Federal Credit Union has taken on the sole sponsorship of the CCA’s Gift Wrap Fundraiser at Harford Mall. Gift Wrap began in early December and will continue through December 24th at a kiosk in front of Macy’s. CCA aims to raise funds towards Cancer LifeNet’s $1 million annual budget.

Cancer LifeNet is available to any Harford County resident undergoing cancer treatment and offers patients and their families support services and navigation for their treatment plans, lifestyle changes, and the many other impacts of their cancer journey.  “The limitations caused by the pandemic have affected how we raise funds for Cancer LifeNet, but we are energized to do as much as possible to help continue the free supportive care services that the residents of the county facing a cancer diagnosis depend on to help them and their families,” stated volunteer coordinator, Gail Cook.

Mike MacPherson, President, and CEO of Freedom Federal Credit Union joined the Board of Directors for the Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation in 2017 and has been instrumental in shaping the Credit Union’s support for the Foundation.  “Freedom continues to be a proud supporter and advocate for the Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation and their mission to deliver quality healthcare services to the Harford County community,” stated MacPherson.  “It is an honor for us to once again sponsor and volunteer at this fundraiser, which benefits such a great cause”.

The CCA Gift Wrap Fundraiser is an effort put on by many dedicated volunteers, who can wrap their holiday gifts for a nominal fee while supporting Cancer LifeNet. 

Freedom is a proud partner to the Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation providing annual funding and resources for many Foundation campaigns and events.
