Leominster Credit Union recently donated 77 new blankets to area homeless shelters and charities through their participation in the Massachusetts Credit Union League’s Credit Union Community Hope Initiative.

“We are extremely grateful to receive these blankets,” commented Kaska Yawo, Executive Director of the African Community Education organization. “They are definitely welcomed during these economic times.  This is not the first time LCU has helped us out and we are very thankful to be involved with such a community oriented organization.”

The blankets were distributed by LCU employees to several area organizations including, African Community Education (A.C.E.) and Abby’s House – both in Worcester, as well as seven other organizations in North Central Massachusetts.
