Connex Donates More Than $500 to Malta House

Funds were collected through Coins-for-Change charitable initiative


Meriden, Conn (Aug. 13, 2018) - Connex Credit Union recently donated more than $500 to Malta House in support of the organization’s mission. These funds were raised through Coins-for-Change, Connex’s philanthropic program that contributes more than $13,000 annually to local charitable organizations as part of the ConnexCares initiative.


Malta House’s mission is to provide a nurturing home environment, support services and independent living skills to pregnant and parenting mothers of all faiths and their children. Mothers at Malta House receive on-site counseling, financial education, parental development followed by transitional and post-residential support.

“We would like to thank Connex Credit Union for supporting our mothers and babies, and for allowing us to continue our work to ensure they have futures bright with possibility and hope,” said Carey Dougherty, Director of Development and Strategy, Malta House.
