Hanscom AFB, MA (Jan. 15, 2021) – Hanscom FCU Charitable Foundation recently awarded a donation of $20,000 to benefit the Cooperative Credit Union Association’s (CCUA) support of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless’ A Bed for Every Child program. This donation brings the Foundation’s total contributions to A Bed for Every Child to over $35,000 in 2020. This donation was raised through the Foundation’s biannual cash raffle, which also had a cash prize of $10,000 for one lucky member.

“We’re proud to continue to support the CCUA and the Coalition with this gift, especially this year,” said the Foundation’s chairman of the board, Paul Marotta. “We deeply value our relationship with the CCUA. Not only do they make the industry stronger, but so much of what they do, including their support of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, makes our whole community stronger.”

The Cooperative Credit Union Association represents many credit unions across Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Delaware, and provides education and advocacy programs in order to provide credit union members with the best financial services possible. The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless is the oldest advocacy group for the homeless in the commonwealth of Massachusetts. Its relationship with the credit union and the CCUA is long-standing, marked by countless fundraising and support efforts.
