Showing the Love
Tales 4 Tails
Tales 4 Tails

For the second consecutive summer, we are sponsors of a collaboration between Lowell Humane Society and the Greater Lowell Family YMCA, called Tales 4 Tails. Students who are part of the YMCA’s Summer Reading Program will visit the Humane Society two times per week and read to shelter animals awaiting adoption, including cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs.

Employee Volunteer Winner

Each quarter, we randomly select one employee volunteer who gets to choose a nonprofit organization to receive $500. Our most recent winner is Varanika Soukseunchay, Senior Consumer Loan Underwriter! Varanika chose E For All to be the recipient of a $500 donation. She volunteers her time to Mill City Grows.

Through our MoneyStrong and Employee Scholarship Programs, we recently awarded 28 current and soon-to-be college students with $17,000 to assist in college expenses. Twenty-two MoneyStrong Scholarships were awarded to our members, and six Employee Scholarships were awarded to employees, employees’ children and employees’ grandchildren.

Dressing Casual for Hidden Battles

Each month, we dress casual to support a local non-profit organization. In June, employees paid a minimum of $5.00 to dress down for Hidden Battles. Hidden Battles strives to help preserve the healthy minds of service members, veterans, police officers, firefighters, EMS personnel, dispatchers and nurses through treatment and counseling for depression, suicidal tendencies, and PTSD.
