December Food Drive | December 5-17

Community Food Drive to Be Hosted by WESTconsin Credit Union

WESTERN WI—WESTconsin Credit Union offices are collecting non-perishable food products and cash donations for families in need from December 5-17. Items can be dropped off at any WESTconsin location including Amery, Baldwin, Barron, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Ellsworth, Hudson, Menomonie (North, Downtown and East), New Richmond, Prescott, River Falls and Spring Valley. All proceeds will be delivered by the credit union to local food pantries for distribution. 

Monetary donations are especially valuable because for every $1 in cash, food pantries can purchase up to $10 worth of food.  The number of families in need has increased substantially in recent years, leaving food shelves less stocked than in the past. According to the 2010 Poverty and Population estimates from the US Census Bureau, 69,950 people in the 14 counties of west central Wisconsin live in poverty including more than one of every five children.

Online donations accepted.
