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.”
