Achieva Credit Union helps fight food insecurity and wins CANstruction Contest benefitting food bank

The credit union constructed a design using nearly 300lbs of canned goods, then donated to people in need

DUNEDIN, FL (January 23, 2023) — Achieva Credit Union, a not-for-profit financial institution, rose to the challenge when a local food bank asked organizations in the community to compete in a CANstruction contest. Achieva created a heart-shaped inspired design using nonperishable canned goods totaling nearly 300lbs of food donated.

“We chose to create a heart with the cans because this project symbolizes where our heart lies as an organization, helping those in need in the communities we serve,” says Gary Regoli, President and CEO of Achieva Credit Union.
Achieva Credit Union proudly displayed the CANstruction design in the lobby at its headquarters in Dunedin, FL prior to the donation drive pick-up. The food has since been distributed to help feed those in need in the Tampa Bay Area.
