Bellwether staff contributes $1,200 to help feed and shelter those in need

MANCHESTER, NH (March 26, 2021)

Bellwether Community Credit Union employees recently donated $1,200 to Families in Transition-New Horizons to help families and individuals struggling with homelessness and food insecurity in the greater Manchester area and throughout the state.

After accomplishing a fourth quarter lending challenge set by Bellwether President/CEO Nathan Saller, Bellwether employees were each awarded a $50 gift certificate for a home pizza party.

The staff was able to select from an array of pizza restaurants or donate their proceeds to New Horizons/FIT. Close to one-third of the company chose to give their reward to the nonprofit organization.

“Our employees have always demonstrated their commitment to aiding their communities, especially during challenging times,” said Jeff Benson, Chief Operating Officer at Bellwether Community Credit Union. “The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our daily lives and put a strain on many nonprofit organizations. Thanks to our staff’s generosity, this donation will help those in need when they need it the most.”
