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

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

“Our credit union has made a commitment to our community to annually donate a percentage of proceeds to organizations and worthwhile causes,” NCCU President/CEO Teresa Arnold said. “We are so thankful that we can help provide books to the children in our county.”

CCIL Board Member Lilo Duncan said the cost to provide children with books from birth until age 5 is $150 per child.
