(Somerville, MA) Naveo Credit Union collected over 200 books during the month of April as part of their Children’s Book Drive.
Each year, Naveo Credit Union participates in the statewide book drive spearheaded by the Cooperative Credit Union Association. The Association collaborates with the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless to distribute the collected books to local non-profits, low-income daycares, schools and shelters in Somerville, Cambridge and surrounding communities.
Naveo got the word out about their collection via press releases, their Facebook page, email blasts and their community partners. Naveo has exceeded their goal for several consecutive years and increased their level of participation based on the previous year’s collection. Over the past seven years, Naveo has collected nearly 2,000 books.
“The annual Children’s Book Drive is an important initiative that makes sure more children in our community have access to books. We are proud to participate in events that have a direct impact in our community, like the annual Children’s Book Drive. We want to extend a big thank you to our members, staff and neighbors who helped us collect books and give the gift of reading to children in need,” commented Rui F. Domingos, Chief Executive Officer at Naveo Credit Union.
