(Somerville, MA) Naveo Credit Union raised nearly $300 for The Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in one day during their Rally Against Cancer fundraiser. On April 9, Naveo staff dressed down in Red Sox gear for the Boston Red Sox home opener in exchange for a $5 donation to the Jimmy Fund. In addition, the branches were equipped with canisters for members to donate to the cause.
In a few short hours, our members and staff generously contributed to the fight against cancer. Naveo then matched donations collected to benefit The Jimmy Fund. Several photos of the Naveo team was also posted on social media via the official hastag, #RallyAgainstCancer.
“Our members and staff truly embody the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People” and it especially shows when we host fundraisers such as Rally Against Cancer. In one day, our team and members were able to come together to help make a difference in the fight against cancer. We’re honored to participate in fundraisers such as Rally Against Cancer,” commented Rui F. Domingos, Chief Executive Officer at Naveo Credit Union.
