We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser Raises Over $50,000
Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union held its seventh annual We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser on Saturday, February 25, 2017, raising over $50,000 to support the Foundation’s mission. The We Share a Common Thread Foundation was established in 2011 to help support the lives of people in our community by providing assistance with food, shelter, clothing health and education.
Over 300 Jeanne D’Arc employees, business partners, members and supporters gathered at Lenzi’s in Dracut to attend the Fundraiser. Attendees of all ages took chances on basket raffles, bid on silent auction items, entered raffles for cash prizes and danced the night away to help the Credit Union exceed its fundraising goal for this year’s event.
“We are so appreciative of the support we receive year after year,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “Our Foundation allows us to help hundreds of community members each year and the support we are given makes it all possible,” he added.
Due to the great success of this year’s event, the Credit Union will be able to expand its donations in Nashua and the Lawrence Area, as well as the greater Merrimack Valley. The Foundation will be distributing the proceeds from the Fundraiser to 80 non-profit organizations who make a difference in the community.
