Lucy’s Love Bus recieves $1,500 from Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union
LOWELL, MA (October 22, 2013) — 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 Lucy’s Love Bus. Lucy’s Love Bus seeks to ease the suffering of pediatric cancer patients throughout Greater Lowell by providing free integrative therapies such as massage, acupuncture, art, and music therapies.
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 Lucy’s Love Bus continue its important work.”
In this campaign, the organizations received strong support from website visitors. When the campaign ended, Lucy’s Love Bus received the most votes, while Lifelinks, Inc. came in second, and the Lowell Association for the Blind came in third. Individuals are permitted to vote only once.
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: the Center for Hope and Healing, the Horn Home for the Aged, and the Recreational Adult Resource Association (RARA). All three nonprofit organizations are based in Lowell.
