Members First Credit Union Donates $15,000 to Support City Youth Programs
Manchester Police Athletic League (MPAL) Ball Sponsorship Helps Raise Critical Funds

November 10, 2021 – For the third year in a row, Members First Credit Union was the presenting sponsor for the Manchester Police Athletic League (MPAL) Ball. The $15,000 sponsorship will help MPAL continue its work with young people in the community. MPAL is a nonprofit organization that provides free after-school athletic, educational and enrichment programs for youth living in Greater Manchester. The programs connect kids with police officers, who serve as positive role models.

“We have had the privilege of sponsoring the MPAL Ball since its inception three years ago,” said Bruce Leighton, president and CEO, Members First Credit Union. “As a local credit union, we strongly believe that investing in our community benefits everyone, and we greatly admire MPAL’s mission to bring police officers and Manchester kids together. MPAL is investing in the youth of the Greater Manchester community and we are pleased to assist them in their important work.”

Attendees of the September 25th MPAL Ball enjoyed an evening of dinner, dancing, games, and auctions. “The 2021 MPAL Ball, presented by Members First Credit Union, was a great success and a wonderful evening,” said Jayna Stevens, MPAL director of operations and development.

“Last year we had to shift to an at-home event, so it was wonderful to see so many members of the community coming together in person to support Manchester’s at-risk youth. MPAL is grateful for the continued generosity of Members First.”
