American Heritage Credit Union makes $10,000 donation to help feed people in need

American Heritage Buys and Packs Food During National Volunteer Month for Caring for Friends

PHILADELPHIA, PA (April 27, 2022) — WHAT:                 On Thursday, April 28 — the last week of Volunteer Month — American Heritage will volunteer and pack over one thousand snack bags for Caring for Friends food bank. Caring for Friends serves about 10,000 homebound seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities, as well as people experiencing homelessness, families, children, and individuals. This is excellent timing for a donation and volunteer shift as the need for food has skyrocketed due to inflation and exceptionally high food costs.

This is the first of three such events to provide needed food for our hungry neighbors in the five-county greater Philadelphia region.
