People’s Credit Union recently donated $700 to the Jonnycake Center in Peace Dale, RI. The funds were raised through a combination of People’s Credit Union employee donations totaling $425 as a result of a monthly dress down day, called Casual for a Cause, as well as an additional $275 from a Red Sox themed raffle held throughout the month of March in the Credit Union’s Wakefield branch located at 150 Old Tower Hill Road.

The Jonnycake Center was opened in 1974 by community members who saw a need for an agency that could help people who might not qualify for support through established agencies. They named it after the jonnycake, a staple food in colonial days, because the founders’ goal was to provide basic necessities for local people in need. The Center was operated from a store front in Wakefield before moving to their present location at the rotary in Peace Dale.

“The Jonnycake Center helps improve the quality of life for individuals and families by providing assistance to those in need, and we are proud to present them with this donation,” said Shayna StPierre, Teller at People’s Wakefield branch.
