The season of giving is approaching, and The University of Toledo Federal Credit Union is holding a food drive for the Toledo Food Bank through Friday, Nov. 13.
The Toledo Food Bank is a nonprofit organization with a mission to enable other community organizations to end hunger. The bank strives to maximize community resources by effectively obtaining and distributing food through a collection and distribution system.
“Everyone deserves to have food in front of them, especially for Thanksgiving,” said Kara Mominee, marketing manager for the UT Federal Credit Union.
Donations can be dropped off at any of the credit union’s three locations: 5248 Hill Ave., Mulford Library Room 013E or Student Union Room 1570.
Donations may include non-perishable items — peanut butter, canned goods or dry pasta. For a full list of what the Toledo Food Bank needs, visit toledofoodbank.org/donate/ways-to-give/donate-food.
You don’t have to be a member of the credit union to participate in the drive. And for every three items donated, you will receive one raffle ticket to enter for the chance to win a $25 Visa gift card. See a bank teller to be entered in the raffle.
“We just want to collect as much food as we can,” Mominee said.
The credit union also will accept monetary donations.
