Credit Unions Fight Against Hunger
Last season, Alaska Credit Unions took a stand, and fought against hunger together with the Cash-4-Cans campaign. WIth your help and generosity, we raised over $25,000 for the Food Bank of Alaska and a total of $70,000 for food banks all over the state. This campaign helped provide food to many Alaskan families and we want to thank you for your continuing support for hunger knows no season.
