Workers Credit Union Donates Merrimack Valley Food Bank
Workers Credit Union is pleased to announce its donation of $10,000 to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank from its annual holiday campaign held in December. During the campaign, WCU members were asked to open a SaveUp savings account or set up an automatic transfer to their WCU savings and the credit union would donate $5 on their behalf to the food bank.
“Workers is extremely proud of our members’ and employees’ dedication to the community. This donation speaks volumes of their willingness to help, even by doing something as simple as changing a banking habit. We’re honored to be a part of the Merrimack Valley community and support the food bank’s amazing work through our annual campaign” said Workers Credit Union President & CEO, Doug Petersen.
“We can’t thank the Workers Credit Union members enough for their support during these trying times. During the pandemic, the food bank has assisted more than 65,000 people monthly and donations like this help us continue to serve their needs,” said Amy Pessia, Executive Director of the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
Workers opened a new Lowell PlanIt at the Sunrise Shopping Center on Bridge Street on April 5, 2021. The new location will support the Workers Way™ financial coaching program which focuses on helping members improve their financial wellbeing. Using a combination of face-to-face coaching and the latest self-serve technology, Workers provides a personal, user-friendly banking experience that helps members pursue their goals with confidence.
Donations can be made to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank at www.mvfb.org.
