HUECU collects new and used children’s books for our community.

Each April, HUECU participates in the Credit Union Community Hope Initiative in collecting new and used children’s books.

As part of our ongoing commitment to helping people and improving our communities, HUECU working with the Cooperative Credit Union Association’s charitable partner, the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless in Lynn, was one of many credit unions who collected children’s books and distributed them to many nonprofit agencies in cities and communities throughout the state.

Providing books to children is a simple, effective, and inexpensive way to promote language and literacy growth.  During the month of April, HUECU staff and members donated a total of 379 books.

Thank you for your participation in donating books and recognizing the value of reading.
