Global Credit Union Foundation raises funds for local food banks
ANCHORAGE, AK (November 28, 2023) — Thanks to the generous donations of Global Credit Union members, the Global Credit Union Foundation’s 2023 Cash for Cans® donation drive raised more than $110,000 in the month of September.
Global Credit Union and the Foundation partnered for the fundraiser, with cash donations collected at neighborhood Global branches. The Foundation then distributed the funds to food banks and pantries in Alaska, Maricopa County in Arizona, the High Desert region of California, Idaho’s Kootenai County, and Washington State.
“The Cash for Cans drive is a wonderful opportunity to work with members of the credit union and the community to help those who need it most,” said Geoff Lundfelt, president of the Global Credit Union Foundation. “It’s hard to think of a more critical issue to tackle than families and children who struggle with food insecurity. By working together, we help more local food banks and pantries than we would alone.”
The Global Foundation Cash for Cans donation drive happens every September to coincide with National Hunger Action Month.
