American Heritage Invites Members and the Community to Take Part in the 9th Annual Spirit of Giving Food Drive
American Heritage Credit Union invites its credit union members and the community to help reach collect 20,000 pounds of food in this year’s Spirit of Giving Food Drive. All nonperishable food donations will be distributed to various food pantries and food banks throughout the community this holiday season. The Spirit of Giving Food Drive is a part of American Heritage's annual holiday initiative to provide much needed meals, nonperishable food items, and monetary donations to local families and organizations in need.
The donations will be collected from October 3rd to November 26th at all 35+ American Heritage branch locations. Nonperishable goods such as soups, canned meat and vegetables, rice and pasta are at a higher demand this time of year, primarily due to Thanksgiving as well as December holidays.
“We are deeply concerned about the impact that inflation is having on families in our region this year,” stated Bruce K. Foulke, President & CEO of American Heritage. “As we have in years past, I am grateful for the support from our associates, business partners, and members that will make an impact on our community food banks and organizations and will help us reach our goal of 20,000 pounds.”
Each American Heritage branch will collect goods for a food bank or organization that directly supports families in the area the branch is located. Food banks and organizations who will receive donations from this year’s Spirit of Giving Food Drive include:
In addition to the food donations, the Spirit of Giving initiative includes more than $50,000 in annual donations to local food collection and distribution organizations, as well as individual families in our community.
