Freedom Credit Union to help provide ‘A Bed for Every Child’
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – All children deserve a comfortable, restful night’s sleep—a freedom that one historical, regional credit union will help secure for them. Freedom Credit Union (FCU) is again proud to partner with the Pioneer Valley Chapter of the Cooperative Credit Union Association on “A Bed for Every Child.”
“A Bed for Every Child is one of our most cherished organizations that we support,” said President and CEO of Freedom Credit Union, Glenn Welch. “We have a strong commitment to our community and this group is doing amazing work right here in our backyard. Every child deserves a warm, safe place to rest their head for a restorative night of sleep.”
In 2011, the Massachusetts Coalition learned that many public-school students were not getting enough sleep because they did not have their own beds. In response, the coalition launched “A Bed for Every Child” with a mission to help facilitate the healthy sleep children need to learn and succeed. Every $250 equals a “Comforts of Home” package that provides sheets, blankets, pillows and oral hygiene kits. Every $350 allows for a “Bed Buddy” package, which provides one child with a complete bed set.
Each FCU branch is currently collecting cash donations though December 17 to benefit A Bed for Every Child and help Freedom reach its goal.
