Global’s Scare Away Hunger Food Drive comes to close
SPOKANE, WA (November 8, 2016) — Global Credit Union’s Scare Away Hunger Food Drive has come to a close. We are proud to share that our Members and employees worked together to donate enough food to provide 1000 meals!
Jack Fallis, CEO/President and the Global Credit Union executive team presented our donation to Julie Humphreys, Community Relations Manager of Second Harvest.
All of our stateside branches collected food during the month of October for Global’s Scare Away Hunger Food Drive. One Global employee shared her story. She grew up in Spokane and as a child, her family had relied on the local food bank. It was an evident example that food insecurity affects so many in our communities.
According to 2015 government statistics 42.2 million Americans live in food-insecure households, including more than 13 million children. Global believes that working together with our community, our employees, our Members, Second Harvest and other nonprofits, we can make a difference.
