LONDON, ONTARIO – Libro Credit Union has announced a donation of $50,000 to the Health & Homelessness Fund for Change, the community-wide response launched by Mayor Josh Morgan during his State of the City Address last week.
As a purpose-led organization, the credit union exists to make an impact on people and communities and has a special focus on housing, which is one of the four pillars of Libro. In recent months, Libro, as part of London’s business community, has been an active participant in the conversations that led to this effort to address critical challenges around housing, health and homelessness.
Jordan Moat, Libro’s Regional Community Manager for London, Elgin and Oxford, said: “With six branches in London and a focus on people before profit, Libro has been watching the city’s homelessness problem closely and with concern. We agree it is a crisis. So it is gratifying to see London respond as a community, with almost 70 organizations involved and work underway to create a whole-system response.
“Libro Credit Union is determined to be part of the solution. We thank the anonymous donor who started the fund with $25 million and congratulate them on matching another $5 million from donors like us. We’re very pleased to double our donation in this way.
“We know that people are suffering and dying in our city. We live here, too, and we share the distress that so many feel in response to the homelessness crisis. We are glad to make a contribution and call on others to join us. As everyone at a credit union knows, we become stronger when we work together.”
Jordan Moat is available for media interviews.
