Align Credit Union announces support of “A Bed for Every Child” initiative
LOWELL, MA (June 17, 2019) — Align Credit Union is pleased to announce their support of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless’ A Bed for Every Child initiative. Over the course of several months, the credit union participated in Build-A-Bed events, collected donations from Members in their seven branches and helped increase awareness of the program through marketing and social media efforts.
“Most of us take for granted the bed we sleep in each night but there are thousands of Massachusetts children growing up in poverty who have no bed of their own,” said Robyn Frost, A Bed for Every Child Executive Director. “A bed is a very basic need that many low- to no-income families simply cannot afford.”
“It was heartwarming to see so many of Align’s Members join our employees in supporting A Bed for Every Child,” said Tom Hammond, Align EVP and CFO. “Together, we’re helping make sure that children get a great head start in the morning and arrive at school refreshed and ready to learn.”
