Houston Chapter of Credit Unions Battles Hunger
Monday, August 21, 2017 7:00 AM

Fewer Houstonians will go hungry due to the efforts of local credit unions. The Houston Chapter of Credit Unions Summer Food Drive resulted in a donation of more than 1,500 pounds of food for the Houston Food Bank, and the group added a sizable monetary donation to boot.

The 2017 Summer Food Drive started on June 1 and wrapped up at the Houston Chapter of Credit Unions Business Partner Expo on Aug. 15.

"The Houston Food Bank was shocked at the amount of food we donated,” said Valarie Brittain, chairperson for the drive and vice president of human resources for Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union. “We are delighted to help in the fight against hunger and excited that this food drive was such a great success.”

The Houston Chapter of Credit Unions provides a collaborative environment for credit union professionals and volunteers to receive education, leadership development, and the means to grow credit union community influence. The Houston Chapter comprises more than 100 credit unions in the Houston metropolitan area.
