Leominster Credit Union has proudly participated in Children’s Book Month for over 20 years, an annual event sponsored by the Cooperative Credit Union Association.
During the month of April, donations of new and gently used children’s books were accepted at all LCU locations. LCU employees participated in Jeans Days raising funds to purchase books. This year’s event was organized by Rachel Terrell, Executive Assistant, assisted by Linda Taratuta, Elizabeth Bushnell, Mary Marchant, Nicole Florio and Amy Lacouture. LCU members and employees generously donated over 990 books.
Books were distributed to various organizations including; MOC (Child Care and Head Start Center), Sunrise Assisted Living, Fitchburg Public Schools, Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg/ Leominster, Johnny Appleseed School, Clinton Preschool, Elementary and District Resource Center, Wachusett Regional High School Preschool and the Francis Drake School.
