People’s Credit Union today announced a $10,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Newport County in support of its Licensed Childcare program and the North End Clubhouse at the Florence Gray Center. 

Both programs provide kids and young adults life-enhancing programs focused on academics, health, and leadership. 

“As a local credit union, it’s our responsibility to support and invest in the communities that we serve,“ said Sean Daly, People’s Credit Union’s President & CEO in a statement. “Quality childcare and youth programs are a vital investment in our community that need our support now more than ever.” 

Joe Pratt, Executive Director & CEO of the Boys and Girls Club remarked, “We were thrilled to receive the call to let us know Peoples Credit Union chose the BGC of Newport County as a recipient of their generous donation. We are grateful for their support of the Club and our mission. The impact of their gift is immediate as over 70% of the club’s annual budget comes directly from philanthropy. It is very impressive that Peoples Credit Union wishes to pay it forward to the youth of our community.”
