Lowell Humane Society receives $1,500 from Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union

LOWELL, MA (April 9, 2014) – Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is pleased to announce that the winner of the latest “Give a Click” campaign located on our website – – is the Lowell Humane Society. This nonprofit’s main mission is to prevent cruelty to animals. It works to provide care for homeless and distressed animals, and educate the public about responsible pet ownership. The Lowell Humane Society is one of the oldest humane organizations in the state of Massachusetts.

Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union understands the value of community and working together.  On the 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 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 the Lowell Humane Society continue its important work.”

The current “Give a Click” campaign is focused on another trio of nonprofit organizations in the region. The organizations vying for the next donation are: A Gift From John, Mill City Grows, and Operation Delta Dog.
