Leominster Credit Union Presents $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity

Leominster, MA – Leominster Credit Union will be a Corporate Home Build Sponsor of two Habitat build sites located in Fitchburg and Worcester.  In addition to the $5,000 donation, LCU employees will volunteer their time and work at these two sites during the summer and fall of 2013.

“This will be the second year we partnered with Habitat for Humanity on their ‘Build Days’, commented Carol A. Southworth, Interim President & CEO.  “Our employees continue to talk about how rewarding it was to participate in last year’s corporate building days.  LCU strongly believes in investing in our communities, and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with Habitat for Humanity to help hard-working families realize their dream of homeownership.”

“We truly appreciate LCU’s contribution of both financial support as well as volunteer hours.  We look forward to working with them again this summer,” remarked Maggie Monroe-Cassel, Executive Director of North Central Massachusetts Habitat for Humanity.
