Mass. league presents 125000 to homeless coalition
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (12/28/10)--The Credit Union Community Hope Initiative presented the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless with a check for $125,000 on Dec. 17, representing funds raised by the credit unions of Massachusetts during 2010, according to the Massachusetts Credit Union League (MCUL). The presentation took place at Hanscom FCU’s main office, which is located on Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass. It contributed $10,000 to the appeal. The initiative is an effort organized by the Massachusetts league through which Massachusetts credit unions join together to assist worthy causes. The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless has been the league’s charitable partner for more than 20 years. “The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless is an organization that inspires all of us in the credit union community,” said Nicole James, president of MAFCU FCU in Boston and chairman of the league’s Social Responsibility Committee. “With a small staff of skilled, dedicated, and highly motivated professionals, they work tirelessly to help families find safe, affordable, and permanent homes.” MCUL President Daniel F. Egan Jr. praised the credit unions’ efforts. “The leadership, staff, and membership of Hanscom FCU constantly demonstrate their generosity,” he said. “Not only has the credit union done a tremendous job in supporting the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, but it also raises money for Children’s Hospital, veterans’ charities, scholarships, the Lowell High School ROTC program, and many other great causes.” In a related matter, Hanscom FCU earlier this month delivered $1,000 worth of personal items to the Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System--part of a longstanding credit union tradition to make donations to commemorate Veteran’s Day.
