Workers Credit Union is pleased to announce their donation of $5,000 to the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell as part of their annual sponsorships. On March 12th, six Workers Credit Union employees volunteered with Habitat to complete tile and finish work at Habitat’s newest build in North Billerica.

“Supporting the community through donations and employee volunteerism is part of our every day culture at Workers Credit Union. We have supported other chapters of Habitat in the past so working with Habitat Greater Lowell was an easy decision. We’re proud to have employees so dedicated to working within the community and supporting others” said Doug Petersen, President & CEO of Workers Credit Union.

“Working for a company that strengthens the community through donations and volunteerism is a priority for me. Now as an Area Manager, I’m happy to encourage our team members to be involved and support their communities as well. It was a pleasure to see our new Lowell Branch staff connect with an amazing organization like Habitat for Humanity,” said Mohammad Rizwan, AVP, Area Manager of Merrimack Valley branches of Workers Credit Union.

Workers opened a new Lowell PlanIt at the Sunrise Shopping Center on Bridge Street on April 5, 2021.
