Greylock Federal Credit Union Donates $12,500 to Hillcrest Educational Foundation

PITTSFIELD, Mass. Apr. 27, 2016 – Greylock Federal Credit Union has donated $12,500 to Hillcrest Educational Foundation in support of our Annual “Bees” Prendergast Reception and Hillcrest Dental Care’s program to provide dental health education in local schools.

The 2016 Annual St. Patrick’s Reception was held at the Country Club of Pittsfield on March 18, with a great show of support from the local community, including Greylock Federal Credit Union, who was the lead sponsor of the event.

Throughout February and March Hillcrest Dental Care gave presentations at 8 local schools and day care centers to educate children on the importance of oral health and the role it plays in a person’s overall health. We’re proud to have reached 479 students during this time and look forward to continuing the program next year!

Hillcrest’s Director of Development and Community Relations, Tim Gallagher said of the generous donation, “Greylock continuously steps up to the plate and supports our efforts in creating a healthier community here in Berkshire County”.
