Operation Delta Dog receives $1,500 from Jeanne D’arc Credit Union

LOWELL, MA (July 30, 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 Operation Delta Dog. This nonprofit’s main mission is to train shelter dogs to become service animals for veterans suffering from the challenges of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and traumatic brain injury that have left them debilitated, sleepless, and unable to cope. Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union understands the value of community and working together.  On 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 Operation Delta Dog continue its important work.” In this campaign, the organizations received strong support from website visitors. When the campaign ended, Operation Delta Dog received the most votes, while Mill City Grows came in a close second, and A Gift from John 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: It’s All About the Kids Foundation, Kids in Disability Sports, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lowell.
