CAP COM DONATES $15,000 TO St. Peter's Health Partners for Personal Protective Equipment



CAP COM Federal Credit Union has announced a $15,000 donation to St. Peter’s Health Partners. The donation will be used to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) for the hospital’s frontline workers, and follows a large gift of masks to the hospital last month. As an annual spring luncheon hosted by the financial services arm of the credit union was cancelled due to COVID-19, event expenses are being redirected to this gift.

“CAP COM is built on the foundation of serving our clients, team members, and community,” said John Shartrand, Chief Officer, CAP COM Federal Credit Union. “During this time of crisis, honoring that commitment by supporting frontline healthcare staff is the least we can do. Because the CAP COM Federal Credit Union family of businesses believes so strongly in community support, we can express our gratitude this way. To our friends at St. Peters Health Partners – our thanks goes to all of you.”

“We are grateful to CAP COM Federal Credit Union for their compassionate gift of masks along with $15,000 to purchase additional masks,” stated Karl C. Coté, Executive Director, Northeast Health Foundation. “These generous gifts have enabled us to provide more than 10,000 masks to our care teams, so they can attend to the health needs of our community during the COVID-19 crisis.”

CAP COM’s assistance to the financial institution’s members, employees, and community partners aligns with its mission to serve. To learn more about CAP COM’s relief efforts visit: https://www.capcomfcu.org/
