Point Breeze Credit Union Donates $10,000 to Support Baltimore Humane Society

Point Breeze Credit Union has donated $10,000 to the Baltimore Humane Society to support its ongoing mission to protect our region’s pets and address their suffering.

“At Point Breeze Credit Union, we pride ourselves in being more than a reliable financial institution,” says Point Breeze Senior Vice President and CFO, Tonia Niedzialkowski. “We are a neighbor and community member first, which is why when we opened our office in 2017 at Foundry Row in Owings Mills, we made a commitment to get involved in the local community by helping non-profit organizations like the Baltimore Humane Society and others who play a vital role in our community’s well-being.”

According to Humane Society Executive Director Christine Decorse, the Point Breeze donation will go toward general operations, which include providing safe refuge and care for unwanted and homeless animals; placing animals in loving, permanent homes; offering affordable spaying and neutering; and advancing the humane treatment of animals.

“Because the Humane Society is a private, independent non-profit, we don’t receive any funding from the government or from national organizations like the ASPCA or Humane Society of the U.S.,” notes Decorse. “That’s why support from organizations like Point Breeze is so important. Quite simply, the Humane Society can’t operate without donations from the community like that made by Point Breeze.”

In addition to the Humane Society, Point Breeze currently provides financial and volunteer support for a wide range of organizations throughout the Baltimore area, including Carroll County Hospital’s new Neonatal Couplet Care Program and two nonprofit organizations focused on supporting young people in Baltimore City – Arts Every Day and Bridges.
