Norwich – On Wednesday, August 12th, NOW Executive Director Sarah C Wolfburg was presented a $500 donation by CorePlus Credit Union CEO Nicholas Fortson and EVP/COO Ray Currier at the credit union’s main office. The donation was made possible through the CorePlus Employee Charitable Fund.

In July of 2020, Elizabeth Zachow-Deary, Manager of Marketing and Student Services with CorePlus, reached out to local non-profits, noting that employees of the various credit union branches were looking for community charitable opportunities. Executive Director Sarah Wolfburg shared her appreciation to the employees for choosing NOW as a recipient of their charitable fund, “Like so many other non-profits, this has been a very challenging year and this donation could not have come at a better time. We are so thankful for the continued support of CorePlus; this donation will greatly assist us as we work to preserve our mission of health and wellness in our community.”
