Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union served as Diamond Sponsor of Catie’s Closet Gala
LOWELL, MA (March 24, 2015) — Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is pleased to announce that it served as the Diamond Sponsor of last Saturday’s Catie’s Closet Annual Gala.
“Catie’s Closet serves a vital purpose in our community by providing children and teens with warm clothing and basic necessities, and by helping them to fit in with their peers,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “We were proud to serve as the Diamond Sponsor of the Annual Gala.”
Catie’s Closet began as a tribute to Catie Bisson, a graduate of Lowell High School who was passionate about the power of education and who passed away at the age of 20 due to a connective tissue disorder. Her family sought to honor her memory by helping children and teens succeed in school. Anne-Marie Bisson, Catie’s mother, is the founder of Catie’s Closet and serves as Vice President-Financial Education at Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union.
“I am overwhelmed by the continuing support that Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union has provided to Catie’s Closet,” Anne-Marie Bisson said. “Our ability to sustain and grow our closets is due to the generosity of many community members, especially Jeanne D’Arc, not only as an organization, but also as individuals.”
