Donate and Win!
School is out, and summer break is here at last. Unfortunately, during these next few months, many children of low-income families will no longer have access to the free or reduced-priced breakfast and lunch they were receiving at school. Summer break adds additional expenses such as increased grocery bills, utility bills, and day care costs making it difficult for some families to provide adequate healthy meals for their children.
Last year, KENS 5 along with AFFCU and other sponsors, raised more than 11 million meals for children facing hunger in the San Antonio area through the Million Summer Meals for Kids program. This year, the goal is to raise 12 million meals, but we can’t do this without your help.
AFFCU has once again partnered with KENS 5 and the San Antonio Food Bank to support this great cause by working to raise donations. Million Summer Meals for Kids will run through August 24, 2019. There are donation barrels set up in the lobby of our branches to accept any non-perishable food items such as canned goods, peanut butter, cereal, and soup. Monetary donations will also be accepted at our teller lines, or you can donate directly through the San Antonio Food Bank website. A simple $1 donation can provide up to seven meals!
AFFCU will have donation barrels at the following branch locations. AND….as an added bonus….for every food or monetary donation you make at any of our 6 local branches from now through August 31st, you’ll get an entry to win a $50 gift card!1 The more donations you make, the greater your chance to win!
