Special Olympian FINAL 2 2019.jpg

Westerly Community Credit Union helped celebrate the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics Rhode Island by hosting a 50-Year Celebration Banner signed by the Special Olympics athletes. The banner has traveled throughout Rhode Island to various credit unions representing the contributions they made as part of the Cooperative Credit Union Association. The credit union has remained a major sponsor for more than 18 years and has raised more than $1 million dollars. Shown, from left, are: Dennis DeJesus, CEO of Special Olympics Rhode Island; Jamal Paire, branch manager at the Granite Street WCCU location; Mary Ellen Buckley, WCCU vice president of financial services; Michael Lucca, Special Olympics athlete; and Steve White, WCCU president and CEO.
