LOWELL – With the help of its generous members and employees, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union collected hundreds of school supply items for the children of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua.
From July 15th through July 26th, the Credit Union made boxes available in each of its branch locations for members and employees to make donations. In mid-August, Jeanne D’Arc delivered notebooks, markers, crayons, binders, rulers, backpacks and more to both locations.
“Buying school supplies is an obligation many families have, but not one that every family can afford,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “We are pleased to hold this school supply drive each year to help children in our neighborhoods start their school year off on the right foot, while minimizing the stress this big expense can cause for parents,” he added.
The children at both clubs were thrilled to receive so many new school supplies, which helps them feel prepared for the school year ahead.
