ALL RIVER, MA (April 6, 2015) — This St. Patrick’s Day members and employees of St. Anne’s Credit Union did more than just wear green, they dedicated the day to a great cause, the Town of Swansea Animal Shelter. Together St. Anne’s employees and members were able to raise over $350 for the Shelter that provides care to on average 175-200 stray and lost animals per year, 85-90% of which are returned to their owners or find new safe and loving homes! In addition to the donations, St. Anne’s posted a photo album on Facebook entitled “Erin Go ‘Bark!” with pictures of different adoptable animals at the Swansea Animal Shelter all decked out in their St. Patrick’s Day best. Members were able to view the pictures and “like” their favorite and the dog or cat with the most “likes” at the end of the day received a special treat. The winner of the photo contest ended up being Rocket, an adorable German Shepard mix. Many Credit Union employees also donated items from the Town of Swansea Animal Shelter’s wish list, resulting in a car load of cleaning supplies, blankets and treats, among other things, being dropped off at the Shelter.
