Arizona State Credit Union donates $5K to local food banks

During its 64th Annual Meeting, Arizona State Credit Union demonstrated one of its core values by donating $5,000 to Arizona community food banks. The recipients of this year’s donation include St. Mary’s Food Bank and Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

“Making a difference in our Arizona communities is a key component of our mission at Arizona State Credit Union. To support this mission, we donate funds during our Annual Meeting to local food banks, which we have done for the past several years,” said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. “We are proud to support food donation programs throughout the state, and appreciate all they do to provide for those in need.”

Donated funds will be distributed to various food bank locations throughout the state, and will support efforts to eradicate hunger in local communities.

“Thank you to Arizona State Credit Union for its generous donation to St. Mary’s,” St. Mary’s Food Bank president Beverly Damore said. “This donation will allow us to distribute enough food to provide more than 17,000 meals to the hungry of Arizona. This donation comes at a perfect time, with the long Arizona summer ahead of us. It will certainly be put to good use.”

Michael McDonald, Chief Executive Officer at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona says, “Summer can be a difficult time for families in need. Through their generous gift, Arizona State Credit Union is helping us put meals on tables at a time when they’re most needed. It’s an honor to have such a committed partner in the ongoing battle against hunger.”
