Brigid’s Crossing in Lowell Receives $1,500 From Jeanne D’arc Credit Union
LOWELL, MA – 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 Brigid’s Crossing of Lowell. The organization serves young mothers primarily between the ages of 16 and 21 who come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Brigid’s Crossing operates a shelter in Lowell that houses up to eight young mothers and their children.
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 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 Brigid’s Crossing continue its important work.”
In this campaign, the organizations received solid support from website visitors. When the campaign ended, Brigid’s Crossing received the most votes, while Milly’s Place in Lowell came in second and Merrimack House in Lowell came in third. Individuals are permitted to vote only once.
The current “Give a Click” campaign is focused nonprofit organizations that assist children. The organizations vying for the next donation are: Lowell Day Nursery in Lowell, Acre Family Child Care of Lowell, and the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council’s Head Start Program based in Lawrence.
