Freedom Credit Union raises $1,736 for animal shelters

SPRINGFIELD — Freedom Credit Union raised $1,736 at its 11 Western Massachusetts branches to benefit the Foundation for TJO Animals in Springfield and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Regional Dog Shelter in Turners Falls.

“As a member-owned institution, we do our best to support organizations that are near and dear to our members’ hearts, and it’s obvious by this outpouring of support that we have a lot of animal lovers in our community,” Freedom Credit Union President Glenn Welch said in a press release. “We were glad to take this opportunity to let our local shelters know how much we appreciate their efforts on behalf of our furry friends.”

Freedom Credit Union provided the opportunity for its employees, members and community to buy a “paw print” for $1 or more at any branch throughout the month of March. The two Franklin County branches are at 74 Main St. in Greenfield and 191 Avenue A in Turners Falls.

“It was gratifying to see our branch windows fill with these paw prints,” Welch said. “We extend a thank you to everyone who participated.”
