Saving spare change can add up and Connex Credit Union has discovered a way to utilize these extra coins to make a difference for local charitable organizations. As a part of its community-giving program ConnexCares, Connex Credit Union recently donated $599.33 to Columbus House from the fees collected by Connex’s coin-cashing machine at the North Haven branch. Connex’s “Coins-for-Change” program charges a five percent fee to members and a seven percent fee to non-members and donates the fees collected to charitable organizations in the local community.
“Columbus House is grateful to Connex for their support of our mission to end homelessness” said Sheree DiMario, Volunteer Coordinator, Columbus House.
Columbus House opened its doors in 1982 and since then has been serving those experiencing homelessness as well as those at risk of becoming homeless. Their mission is to provide shelter and housing to adults, families with children and Veterans while fostering personal growth and independence.
