As the situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve we all feel the desire to lend a hand to those in need in our community. Credit Union of Georgia donated 100 bags and over $500 worth of food to the Sanctuary Church to distribute to areas of need within community. The Credit Union did not stop there and has committed to making a financial donation to MUST Ministries and has placed donation bins outside of all branch locations for MUST Food Rapid Response program.
With physical school being closed for the reminder of the school year, there is currently a great demand for food for our students. MUST Ministries has established the MUST Food Rapid Response program to respond to these growing demands. In addition to the 1,500 families a month they serve on a regular basis, they are now reaching out to at-risk students and their families. As a supporter of MUST Ministries and in an effort to assist the community during these unprecedented times, all Credit Union of Georgia branch locations will have bins stationed outside of the doors where non-perishable food items can be dropped off during business hours.
“We understand our community needs us more than ever. The Credit Union is choosing to spread joy and give back during these uncertain times. We are encouraging not only employees to give back, but also educating our members as well. Together we can make our community strong,” said Amanda Arnold, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development.
