We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser Raises Nearly $60,000
Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union held its ninth annual We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser on Saturday, February 23, 2019, raising nearly $60,000 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.
More than 300 Jeanne D’Arc employees, business partners, members and supporters gathered at Lenzi’s in Dracut, MA 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 reach its fundraising goal for this year’s event.
“We are so thankful for the support we receive each year,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “This event allows us to extend our own support to non-profit organiations that are dedicated to helping community members in need.”
Due to the great success of this year’s event, the Credit Union distributed donations to more than 100 non-profit organizations in 18 communities. Please visit WeShareACommonThread.org for a full list of recipients.
