USS FCU Hosts Virtual Fundraiser in Support of Local Food Banks

U. S. Senate Federal Credit Union (USSFCU) is teaming up with members, staff and local communities to raise money for Feeding America. It's called Double the Donation and it’s USSFCU’s virtual food bank fundraising drive.

Details of the fundraiser came last week after the USS FCU Board of Directors pledged $45,000 to assist local food banks in their efforts to combat increased hunger due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Of the donation, $15,000 will be distributed to food banks throughout Maryland, including the Maryland Food Bank, Manna Food Center in Montgomery County, and pantries in Prince George’s County. The remaining $30,000 will be split equally between the Capital Area Food Bank and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, two of the area’s largest food banks operating within the Feeding America® network.

Their goal is to raise $30,000 by May 31, 2020, $15,000 for Capital Area Food Bank and $15,000 for Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, doubling USSFCU’s donation to Feeding America®You can donate to either food bank at the virtual donation site links below:
