LOWELL – Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is excited to announce its ninth annual We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser, which will be held on Saturday, February 23, 2019.

Jeanne D’Arc’s We Share a Common Thread Foundation was established in 2011 to help the Credit Union provide monetary support to numerous charities and organizations throughout the community.

Each year, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union employees, business partners, members and supporters gather together for a night filled with music, games, basket raffles, a silent auction, door prizes and much more. Funds raised during this fun-filled event are distributed to dozens of worthy non-profit organizations within the Merrimack Valley and surrounding communities.

Last year’s Fundraiser raised over $60,000, and the Credit Union disbursed those funds to 95 local organizations.

Community members and businesses can donate to the event in the following ways: provide a gift card to any retail store, restaurant, or merchant; submit a donation online at www.WSACT.com; or mail a donation, made payable to We Share A Common Thread Foundation, to 1 Tremont Place, Lowell, MA 01854. All community members are invited to join Jeanne D’Arc, its employees, supporters, and many non-profit organizations at the event on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Lenzi’s, located at 810 Merrimack Avenue in Dracut, from 7:00pm to 11:00pm.

Tickets are $10.00 if purchased in advance or $15.00 at the door. Those interested in purchasing tickets should contact Alison Hughes at [email protected] or at 978-323-4712. For more information on the We Share A Common Thread Foundation and the annual fundraiser, visit www.WSACT.com.
