Everett Credit Union UNITED WITH BREAD OF LIFE
Bread of Life is a volunteer organization serving the hungry, homeless, needy and isolated. In 2013, they provided the equivalent of 940,000 meals to the community, and the numbers keep growing. With such positive influence in the community, the Everett Credit Union decided to join in and help those in need. To support Bread of Life’s mission, ECU staff recently brought together a helpful donation with canned goods, non-perishable foods, household items and body care items. We can all make a difference by taking the extra step to help a hand in need.
