Honoring Social Responsibility

This annual award is given out by the Cooperative Credit Union Assoc. and the Credit Union National Assoc. to honor a credit union for its social-responsibility projects within the community. UMassFive earned this award in recognition of its participation and fundraising for the UMass Cancer Walk and Run and Will Bike 4 Food.
Supporting the Community

The donation will support work to improve and maintain the Spec Pond recreational area and the town’s sports programs.
