Workers’ Credit Union employees gave United Way of North Central Massachusetts Annual Campaign Drive a major boost through their fundraising efforts.
So far, the credit union has raised and received pledges from their employees and corporate giving of $46,566 for the 2012-2013 campaign. “The credit union has been a tremendous community supporter and this year is no exception” said Phil Grzewinski, president of United Way of North Central Massachusetts.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our employees, who are so generous and want to give back to the community,” said Doug Petersen, president and CEO of Workers’ Credit Union and this year’s United Way volunteer campaign chair.
The 15-branch credit union, with offices from Orange to Acton and Chelmsford, kicked off its annual campaign drive about eight weeks ago, according to Nicole Curtin, assistant vice president, marketing and communications, who is a co-captain of the fundraising committee.
Curtin said the credit union hosted a variety of activities in addition to payroll giving, including every Friday blue jean days, on which employees paid $5 to wear their favorite denim.
