Common Trust Federal Credit Union (CTFCU) is pleased to announce the donation of $500 to the Council of Social Concern in Woburn. The donation comes following CTFCU’s social media “like” campaign in which CTFCU pledged to donate $1 for every like received on their social media pages throughout the months of February and March.  On Thursday, CTFCU’s President and CEO, James McCorkle, presented the $500 check to the Council of Social Concern’s Executive Director, Dean Solomon.

Founded in 1969, the Council of Social Concern provides a variety of essential services to residents of Woburn and Winchester. They offer safe, affordable childcare and parental education courses through their Children’s Center and Family Childcare System, as well as provide food assistance and community resource education through their food pantry.

The organization was founded by Woburn residents who wanted to promote “neighborliness,” and that mission continues today by helping individuals of all ages reach their full potential.  They serve about 2,200 people per year, and rely heavily on donations and the work of over 200 volunteers to keep the facility running.

Since 2019 marks the Council’s 50th Anniversary, CTFCU thought it was a perfect opportunity to give back. Contributing to the Woburn community is one of the credit union’s utmost priorities. This $500 donation is just one of many donations that CTFCU has made to local organizations within the past year. Other donations include the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn and Woburn High School’s DECA Program.

In honor of their 50th Anniversary, the Council of Social Concern will be hosting a gala and auction to benefit their programs and services. Learn more about the 50th Anniversary Gala and the other ways that you can support the work they do for the Woburn community.
