Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union donates $1,000 to Mill City Grows

LOWELL, MA (July 17, 2015) — Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is pleased to announce a recent donation of $1,000 to Mill City Grows, an organization dedicated to fostering food justice by improving physical health, economic independence, and environmental sustainability in Lowell through increased access to land, locally grown food, and education.

“Social responsibility is an integral part of our overall mission,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “We are proud to support Mill City Grows in its quest to improve Lowell residents’ access to fresh, healthy food.”

Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union understands the value of community and working together.  Recognizing that local businesses and organizations are able to provide greater assistance to residents when they combine efforts, Jeanne D’Arc tied an online statements promotion to a donation to Mill City Grows as both are instruments in enhancing environmental sustainability.

“We are so grateful for the support of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union, and we’re absolutely thrilled to work with such a community-minded partner, especially on a project that promotes greener customers and business practices,” said Francey Slater, co-founder and co-director of Mill City Grows. “Together we can grow a healthy and sustainable community in Lowell.”
