Everett Credit Union Children's Book Drive | Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader.
Everett Credit Union's Annual Children's Book Drive is running through the month of April. In partnership with the Massachusetts Credit Union League, the program is now in its 15th year and has collected over 260,000 books for local community programs, Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless and many more children in need.
Residents are encouraged to donate new or gently used children's books in the lobby of Everett Credit Union during normal business hours at 650 Broadway, Everett, MA. With your help, we can promote children to read in our local community who would benefit greatly from our donation! Donations will be accepted through April 30th.
"Every child should have books they call their own," reminds Barbara Frazier, CEO of Everett Credit Union. "I know our community is ready to help."

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.
