Decatur, GA (February 1, 2014) Georgia United Credit Union invites you to participate in our annual "CAN HUNGER" food drive benefitting local food banks in our communities, February 1 through March 31. Help us stock the shelves of your local food pantry and feed neighbors in need.
Please drop off donations at the Georgia United Branch nearest you or make a $1 donation and we'll purchase a food item for you. All members who donate will be entered into a drawing to win an iPad.
The most requested/needed items are:
- Peanut butter
- Canned tuna & chicken
- Canned fruit & vegetables
- Canned soups, stews and pasta
- 100% fruit juice
- Boxed pasta and rice
For the last two years, we encouraged all Georgia United Branches to collect canned goods for local food banks. Our 2013 goal was to surpass 9 tons of food (18,000+ cans) during the 2 month period and Georgia United almost DOUBLED our goal and collected (31,839 cans) 15 tons! (Using these Metrics: One 16 oz. can or box = 1 lb.; $1.00 donation= 1 lb.; 1 ton = 2,000 pounds). This year, February 1 – March 31, we’d like to top that. Will you help us?
