FITCHBURG, Ma., September 14, 2020Workers Credit Union announces it has donated more than $41,000 to two area nonprofit organizations as part of its annual GiveBack program. Earlier in September, executives presented checks to each of the organizations.  Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts received $17,300 and Worcester County Food Bank received $23,600.


“The Worcester County Food Bank and North Central Massachusetts Habitat for Humanity represent a broad range of services that support Workers Credit Union members from across the community,” said Doug Petersen, president and CEO of Workers Credit Union. “In times like these, the services and programs of these organizations are essential for community members.  We’re inspired by our members’ generosity and look forward to continuing to support the Food Bank and Habitat.”


The two nonprofit organizations were chosen by Workers Credit Union and members were given the opportunity to donate a portion, all, or more than their GiveBack funds to the organization of their choice. In addition to the gifted funds, all unclaimed GiveBack funds were included in the donation as well.
