Andrews Federal donates time and money to food bank of South Jersey

SUITLAND, MD (November 16, 2016) — Andrews Federal recently donated $2,500 to purchase meals for Viva South Jersey, the Food Bank of South Jersey’s annual fundraising gala. The event goes a long way in generating funds to serve nearly 200,000 food-insecure South Jersey families from Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

The Credit Union’s donation helped purchase 12,500 meals for food insecure children. Additionally, staff from the New Jersey region volunteered their time to pack and distribute the food.

“We are always excited to give back to the communities we serve,” said Christina Nixon, Burlington Branch Manager. “This time of year is tough on so many families. It feels good to be able to help out as much as possible.”
