Neighborhood Credit Union is donating to North Texas Food Bank during Pandemic
Neighborhood Credit Union has pledged to match dollar for dollar, up to $25,000, to the North Texas Food Bank.
Donations to North Texas Food Bank will help those who are experiencing severe hardship due to the pandemic, COVID-19. Many in the community are going without the basic things that most of us take for granted. Several have lost their job and income due to nonessential businesses temporarily closing; schools have closed depriving many children of meals and essential nutrients that they depended on school for. Our high-risk elderly population are not able to stockpile groceries, and some are shut-in with no way to get these necessities.
“We see what is happening in our world and our communities, and we want to help,” says Neighborhood Credit Union CEO & President, Chet Kimmell. “The core of who we are is our members, and our goal is to be there for our community in both good and bad times. We want to do our part and help those who need it most during this difficult time.”
The donation for the North Texas Food Bank is actively running in our Neighborhood Credit Union’s Facebook page and we are accepting donations until May 31, 2020. Together we can donate up to $50,000 to help those in need.
