LOWELL -- Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union's seventh annual We Share A Common Thread Foundation Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 25.

The We Share a Common Thread Foundation was established in 2011 to help JDCU provide monetary support to numerous charities and organizations throughout the community.

Each year, Jeanne D'Arc employees, business partners, members and supporters gather for a night filled with dancing, games, basket raffles, a silent auction, door prizes and much more. Money raised during the fun-filled event are distributed to dozens of worthy nonprofit organizations within the Merrimack Valley and surrounding communities.

Last year's event raised more than $43,000, and the credit union disbursed the money to 57 local organizations. This year, the credit union has set a goal of $50,000 to extend the support even further.

Jeanne D'Arc officials invite the community at large to join them and help to reach their goal. Community members and businesses can donate to the event in the following ways:

n Providing a gift card to any retail store, restaurant, merchant.

n Making an in-kind donation of services.

n Submitting a donation online at www.WSACT.com, or mailing a check made payable to We Share A Common Thread Foundation.

Everyone is encouraged to attend the fundraiser on Feb. 25, from 7 to 11 p.m., at Lenzi's Millhouse, 810 Merrimack Ave., Dracut. Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance or $15 at the door.
