LOWELL, MA (June 8, 2015) — Align Credit Union is pleased to have partnered with the Timberlane Regional School District, UNO Pizzeria & Grill, Epson and CCS New England for “GET BRIGHTER TIMBERLANE.”

The program ran from March 2 through April 17, 2015. During that time, guests of UNO in Haverhill were able to donate 20% of their bill to the school of their choice by presenting a fundraiser ticket. The school that raised the most funds received an Epson BrightLink® 575Wi interactive projector, including installation and training valued at $4,000, donated by Epson, CCS New England and UNO. The Pollard Elementary School raised 10% of the total amount of $1009.87 and was awarded the interactive projector.

Align supported the initiative by supplying an iPad® and an iPad mini™ as second and third place prizes. The iPad Air® was awarded to Atkinson Academy and the iPad mini™ was awarded to Timberlane Regional Middle School.
