Alaska credit unions partner to fight hunger in September
Denali. A division of Nuvision Credit Union is partnering with credit unions across Alaska during the month of September for Hunger Action Month. We’re asking members to join us in support of efforts to end hunger in our communities. Cash donations are being accepting through Sept. 30.
Almost 100,000 Alaskans, including one in five children, do not know where their next meal is coming from. Unemployment, stagnant wages and rising costs of living increasingly put Alaskans at risk of hunger, and hunger likely impacts more neighbors than you realize. An interactive graphic at Feeding America shows how our Alaska communities are affected. Your contributions during the month of September can help end hunger.
All donations go to the Food Bank of Alaska and area agencies in support of hunger-fighting efforts. The Food Bank plays a pivotal role in assisting one in seven Alaskans who experience food insecurity. In 2018, the non-profit Food Bank partnered with 150 organizations across Alaska to distribute 7.3 million pounds of food and provide 6 million meals. The graphic below explains the Food Bank’s important work.
You can help by making a cash donation at any Denali branch or transferring funds using Online and Mobile Banking during September. Inquire with your branch representative. Contribute $5, $10 or more.
How spare change can change lives:
$5 = 20 meals (24 pounds) $10 = 40 meals (48 pounds)
