ENFIELD, Conn. — Farm Credit East recently announced it has donated $45,500 to local charities throughout the Northeast. The donations were raised as part of a virtual customer appreciation meeting held in November. The financial cooperative donated $25 on behalf of each attendee and the attendees’ branch office then selected a local charity to receive the funds.
“We look forward to our customer appreciation meetings each year and being we couldn’t hold this year’s meetings in person, we wanted to give back to the communities Farm Credit East serves,” said Mike Reynolds, CEO of Farm Credit East. “We hope these donations help the recipient organizations continue to serve local communities during the holiday season.”
Farm Credit East’s 20 branch offices donated a total of $45,500 to 38 organizations throughout the Northeast. Recipient organizations included food banks and pantries, community and health support organizations, youth programs, and various other charitable efforts.
