A Child’s Light, Inc., receives $1,500 from Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union
LOWELL, MA (April 17, 2015) — Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is pleased to announce that the winner of the latest “Give a Click” campaign located on our website – WeShareACommonThread.org – is A Child’s Light, Inc., based in Dracut. This nonprofit’s mission is to prevent all forms of abuse and neglect of children. It informs the public that the prevention of abuse and neglect decreases lifelong adverse medical and emotional consequences for children and promotes their well-being.
Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union understands the value of community and working together. On the WeShareACommonThread.org website, community members can read about three worthy nonprofit organizations and then vote for the one they would most like to see us support. The charity with the most votes then receives a $1,500.00 donation from the Credit Union. Different charities are posted every quarter, so we encourage people to keep returning to WeShareACommonThread.org to help their favorites gain a much-needed donation.
“We consider social responsibility to be an integral part of our overall mission,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “The ‘Give a Click’ campaign allows us to help people in our region become more involved with their communities and with each other. We are pleased to help A Child’s Light, Inc., continue its important work.”
In this campaign, the organizations received strong support from website visitors. When the campaign ended, A Child’s Light, Inc. received the most votes, while Strongwater Farm Therapeutic Equestrian Center came in a close second, and Lowell House, Inc. came in third. Individuals are permitted to vote only once.
The current “Give a Click” campaign is focused on another trio of nonprofit organizations in the region. The organizations vying for the next donation are: My Father’s House, Cor Unum, and Sustainable Westford.
