Foundation Continues “12 Acts of Community Kindness”

Hanscom AFB, MA (Feb. 15, 2022) – Hanscom Federal Credit Union Charitable Foundation recently announced the “12 Acts of Community Kindness” donation recipients for the fourth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022. The Foundation has donated $1,000 to each of the nonprofit organizations chosen for an ongoing campaign to increase its charitable reach.

Each nonprofit organization represents one of three focus categories for the Foundation: service area, funding area, and SEG (Select Employer Group)/other area. Service area organizations are those that local to the area the credit union serves in Massachusetts and Virginia. Funding area organizations are those that provide services to groups close to the credit union’s mission, including ones serving veterans and the unhoused. SEG/other area organizations are those that are either affiliated with the credit union’s select employer groups or aren’t well defined by the other categories.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, the organizations chosen were Friends of the Beverly Public Library, Dog Tag, Inc., Shriner’s Children’s Hospital Boston, and the Jennifer Lynn Kane Scholarship and Charitable Trust. Friends of Billerica Public Library, Fisher House Boston, and Bedford American Legion Post 221 were funded in the first quarter of 2022.

“We’re proud to be able to continue this campaign and reach more organizations doing such great work,” said Laura Galeski, Hanscom FCU’s social responsibility manager. “Both the credit union and Foundation are focused on investing in our community, and supporting these organizations strengthens so many different facets of what makes our communities great.”
