Staff Food Drive and $3000 Donation
Our contribution to the food bank this year was a two-part effort. One part Food & supplies and one part money. The first came from a staff led initiative. Over the course of 10 days, staff were challenged to bring in a different themed item each day. One day of juice, one of pasta, one of hygiene.. and the list goes on. Thanks to the effort and organization of the gfcu staff committee (who generally lead great ideas like this), we’re able to donate an SUV full of food and supplies to the local food bank this past week.
Part two of our contribution came in the form of a $3000 financial donation. This has become something of a tradition, and also comes from our staff. A number of years ago, staff at gfcu decided that the Christmas gift cards they received from management could be put to better use if combined and returned to the community. The result of this is now a notable donation to the food bank every December.
These contributions have become significantly helpful to the food bank, and we want to ensure that we thank our generous staff for stepping up and sharing the wealth. An amazing team with a big heart, going out of their way to make a difference!
