Over a 10-day period from April 25 to May 4, Freedom Credit Union members and staff collected $6,000 to benefit the “Bed for Every Child” campaign of the MA Coalition for the Homeless. Freedom, and other credit unions in the Pioneer Valley, have partnered with the MA Coalition for the Homeless to provide beds for children whose families are at risk of becoming homeless. Freedom’s contribution means that 24 children will receive a new bed!
The MA Coalition for the Homeless launched the “Bed for Every Child” campaign in 2011 after learning from MA public schools that many students in local public schools were not getting a good night’s sleep because they did not have their own bed to sleep in at night. A proven pathway out of homelessness is to ensure children of low-income families receive an education that will allow them to graduate from high school.
We want to thank EVERYONE who contributed to this worthy campaign!
