For the fourth consecutive year, Air Force Federal Credit Union (AFFCU) was a proud sponsor of the KENS 5 Million Summer Meals for Kids food drive.
The food drive kicked off June 1st and ended August 18th with one goal in mind ̶ to help collect 9 million meals so that no child went hungry. AFFCU made it their mission to ensure we did everything possible to help reach this goal. Each of our local branches placed donation barrels inside their lobby to accept donations. The AFFCU Marketing team stationed themselves outside of a local H-E-B on two occasions to collect donations from shoppers, not to mention, AFFCU also donated $3,000 to the San Antonio Food Bank.
We are grateful for all the efforts made by the AFFCU staff, our members, the other sponsors and everyone who made a donation to the food drive. Not only was the goal of 9 million meals reached, it was surpassed! In total, 10.7 million meals were collected for the food drive.
Eric Cooper, San Antonio Food Bank CEO, stated, “It has been an amazing experience to see the generosity of our community, the support that came from individuals, churches, companies, as they support this effort to make sure no child goes hungry this summer.”
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Million Summer Meals for Kids food drive and to the San Antonio Food Bank for allowing us to be a part of this great purpose. We look forward to participating again next year!
