Mills42 FCU continues helping kids sleep safe and sound with A Bed For Every Child

LOWELL, MASS (September 26, 2023) — On August 30th, the Mills42 team had the privilege of  dedicating their time and skills again this year to support A Bed for Every  Child, an organization dedicated to furnishing beds to underprivileged  children. This organization leverages community participation through  its Build A Bed initiatives to construct and furnish beds for the growing  number of children on their waiting list.

The Mills42 team successfully built five beds to benefit children within the  local Lowell community. Working in pairs, team members meticulously  sanded, measured, drilled and assembled raw lumber, ultimately creating  five personalized twin bed frames for five deserving children. 

Mills42 FCU CEO Derek Cronin expressed, “Substituting paperwork and  keyboard typing with sanding and construction brought genuine smiles  to our team’s faces. Engaging in this meaningful cause was an immensely  enjoyable experience, and we are eagerly anticipating the distribution of  these beds within our community. We are committed to continuing our  partnership with A Bed for Every Child for many years to come.”
