December 21, 2015 – Pittsfield, MA – Greylock Federal Credit Union announced the recipients of donations from its “Spirit of Giving” campaign. The donations resulted from fourteen department/teams within the Credit Union choosing worthy organizations or causes, to which Greylock donated $1,000 each.
