Community

10 years of service and still going strong.

Congratulations to our President and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Cochran, on his 10-year anniversary with Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. When Mark joined the organization in 2007 he was the seventh President and CEO in Jeanne D’Arc’s long and illustrious history. From the very start, his passion for serving the community and our members was evident, and he quickly inspired our team members to follow his lead. His values have always mirrored our mission to help our members make smart financial choices and his commitment to serving others is reflected by everyone who knows and works with him. To honor his 10th anniversary, we’ve put together this short video. We look forward to another 10 years and beyond under his leadership.

Getting Creative with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell

A group of our team members, Kearen, Ginnalond, Louise, Ruby and Melina, visited the kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell for a creative activity of painting pottery. Twenty children ages 11-12 added their creative touches to the bowls, painting different designs and cartoons, such as polka dots and their favorite emoji. Once they were all painted, the bowls were sent to Time to Clay where they were fired and then returned to the kids so they could take them home. Thank you to our dedicated employee volunteers!

Growing Donations for Power of Flowers

At the Lowell Summer Music Series on Saturday, August 12th, attendees who visited our table received a beautiful bouquet of flowers in exchange for a donation to the wonderful organization, Power of Flowers. Thanks to the generous donations by concertgoers and a corporate donation, we raised $725 to support their mission of bringing joy to others in need through the power of flowers. Thank you to our friends, Mary and Jane, who were there to graciously accept donations and hand out flowers.

Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell

Thank you to all of our employees and members who donated school supplies to benefit the teens of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell. Your generous contributions of pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks, backpacks, binders and more will help ensure these kids are ready to start the new school year off right.

Stephen D. Jones Charity Golf Tournament

Several of our Jeanne D'Arc team members recently hit the greens at the Stephen D. Jones Charity Golf Tournament, named in honor of our beloved Vice President of Community Development, Steve Jones. Steve passed away unexpectedly in September 2016. This tournament, held every year by the Credit Union Cooperative Association, benefits A Bed For Every Child, an initiative held by the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. This year's event raised a record-breaking amount of $50,000 in Steve’s honor. Steve was known for his warmth and genuine passion for helping others. He was an avid golfer, and this annual golf tournament was one of his favorite events. One hundred thirty-six golfers, which included representatives from Massachusetts credit unions, members of the CCUA, other financial service companies and others, participated in the tournament. Steve's family also attended and expressed their appreciation for the honoring of Steve in such a special way.

Our lovely team members, Melina Sorth, Christine Billington, Kearen Chau and Navi Osorno, dressed the part at the Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association’s YPP Gatsby Party.
