Hanscom FCU Sponsors Build-a-Bed Event for Children in Need

Hanscom AFB, MA (March 6, 2018) –  Approximately 100 volunteers from the Hanscom Air Force Base community braved a nor’easter on Friday, March 2, 2018, to construct beds for area children in need. Fifty-two beds were prepared for donation to A Bed for Every Child, an initiative of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. The Build-a-Bed event was sponsored by Hanscom Federal Credit Union.

“The difficult weather conditions did not deter our intrepid volunteers in the least,” said Hanscom FCU Chairman Paul Marotta. “If anything, they underscored the fact that every child in this country deserves to have a warm, safe bed to sleep in at night.”

During Friday’s event, held at Hanscom AFB’s indoor tennis facility, organizers provided the necessary tools and supplies to construct the beds, each bed taking 90 minutes to complete at a cost of $250, including the frame, mattress, and bedding. Volunteers then went to work sanding and painting, preparing the beds for delivery within the next two weeks. The Credit Union supplied pizza, drinks, and cookies to fuel the volunteer effort.

In addition to its many enthusiastic event volunteers, Hanscom FCU donated over $12,500 to the initiative, including $5,200 raised by employees through their 2017 Holiday Raffle.

Hanscom Federal Credit Union, headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, serves over 81,000 members across the country and overseas through 20 branches, over 100,000 service centers and surcharge-free ATMs, 24-hour telephone service and a web-based branch. The credit union holds $1.2 billion in assets.
