Northeast Community Credit Union is investing in the children of Carter County with a donation of $1,000 to the Carter County Imagination Library.

Northeast Community Credit Union is a Foundation Member of CCIL and has contributed $1,000 each year since the start of Carter County Imagination Library. Carter County Imagination Library provides a free book to children in Carter County every month from birth until they turn five years old.

“Our Board of Directors has made a commitment to our community to annually donate a percentage of proceeds to local organizations and worthwhile causes,” NCCU President/CEO Teresa Arnold said. “We are so thankful to help provide books to children in our county. Children can encounter worlds of adventure and inspiration while learning what great treasures books can be – such a gift.”

According to the CCIL, the cost to provide children with books from birth until age 5 is around $150 per child.   Presenting this year’s donation on behalf of NCCU to Carter County Imagination Library is Nikki Garland, Loans and Member Resolutions.
