Let’s Fight Hunger Together

Although food banks are usually busy during the holiday season, they do see a decline in donations into the New Year. Throughout the year, food banks rely on donations from residents, community partners, and volunteers to continue to provide to those in need.

To help meet this imperative need, the Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation hosts the Affinity Fights Hunger food drive in branches and online from February 1 – February 28 to support food banks local to our branches, keeping the donations within our communities.

Below are the charities our branches will support during the food drive:
