LCU employees donated $5 to wear jeans to work one day in October, raising enough money to purchase four laundry baskets full of new household items such as bed sheets, cooking utensils, flatware, towels, cleaning products and more. The event was organized by LCU employees; Ellen Coughlin, Ruth Pisciotta, Linda Taratuta, Fiona Szpiech and Bryon Goguen.
Cindy Correll, Development Director Veteran Homestead, commented, “No veteran should be discarded, and neither should their experience. Leominster Credit Union has supported Armistice Homestead in Leominster, MA with friendship and supplies. The veterans residing at Armistice Homestead maintain independence and dignity in a home-like atmosphere”.
Veteran Homestead is an independent, non-profit organization that provides housing and care to U.S. Armed Services Veterans from across the nation. Their focus is on reclamation and regeneration to transition soldiers back to civilian life, so they can reclaim their lives and revitalize their futures.
