Polish National Credit Union proudly announces that Rachel Dionne, AVP and Credit Risk Officer, has joined the Board of Directors of Providence Ministries.

PNCU, a full-service community credit union, is committed to meeting community needs and fostering growth. The organization emphasizes community engagement through Corporate Leadership and Volunteerism.

“We encourage our team members to actively participate in community and volunteer activities,” says Mike Sugrue, Executive Vice President. “Currently, our employees are engaged with around forty local organizations through board or committee roles. Rachel’s decision to join the Providence Ministries Board is commendable, and we are excited for the board to benefit from her insights.”

Rachel Dionne, who resides in Southampton, MA with her husband, Todd, is dedicated to community service. Her volunteer work includes over half a decade on the Board of Trustees for Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School, membership on the school’s Finance Committee, involvement in a Youth Ministry Group, service on the Town of Southampton Finance Committee, and as an Eucharistic Minister at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church in Westfield. She now adds the Providence Ministries Board membership to her list of contributions.

Providence Ministries, a non-profit organization serving the greater Holyoke, MA region since 1980, offers life-sustaining and transformative programs to those in need. Sr. Margaret McCleary, SP, founded Providence Ministries, which includes McCleary Manor, Broderick House, Loreto House, Kate’s Kitchen, Margaret’s Pantry, and St. Jude’s Clothing Store. They are affiliated with and sponsored by the Sisters of Providence.

“I am thrilled to join the Board of Directors for Providence Ministries,” says Rachel Dionne. “Their impactful work in providing essential needs like food, clothing, and shelter, as well as sober housing for men in recovery, is inspiring. I look forward to contributing to the mission.”

With nearly 35 years of experience in accounting and finance, Dionne joined PNCU in 2017. In her role, she analyzes complex commercial financial information, oversees commercial lending policies, and manages loan administration, loan servicing, and credit teams.
