Pennsauken, NJ - Yesterday ABCO Federal Credit Union donated 1,085 pounds of food collected as part of their Food & Membership Drive in celebration of International Credit Union Week.

During the week, which is intended to celebrate the ways credit unions improve the lives of citizens worldwide, ABCO  set up food collection bins in their nine locations throughout South Jersey. ABCO donated $500 worth of food and $940 to the food bank ($10 for each new member that joined the credit union during that week). Donations were also accepted from generous ABCO employees, members, and non-members.

  "It's nice to see local organizations working to help others," said Norma Stanton of Delanco, NJ. "Especially in times like these." Norma donated stuffing, mashed potatoes and other items typically served with Thanksgiving dinner.

The Food Bank of South Jersey runs a large-scale food distribution program that annually links 8 million pounds of food with over 200 charitable food providers, such as, food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters. Food Bank of South Jersey is the largest source of government and non-government food assistance in South Jersey.

ABCO FCU is a non-profit financial institution that has been serving South Jersey residents for over 50 years.
