Help Children in the Farmington Area Say Goodbye to Hunger
August 22 through September 23, SLFCU Farmington branches will collect cash donations for the annual ECHO Food Bank Backpack for Kids Program.
The Backpack for Kids Program offers emergency food assistance for kids who are at risk of going hungry over the weekend or during school breaks. Kids not only receive non-perishable food for themselves but for their younger siblings as well. Backpacks filled with food are distributed to 26 schools across San Juan County. School personnel then distribute the backpacks to children at risk of going hungry. Backpacks help avoid the stigma of carrying home a donated bag of groceries.
100% of donations will be used to buy food and backpacks for children. Please consider making a monetary donation at any Farmington branch. SLFCU will match all donations up to $2,500.
Last year, members gave $1,597.78 to this important cause. The Credit Union matched all donations made, for a total of $3,195.56! Every contribution, large or small, is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
