San Angelo Chapter Donates 247 Pounds of Food to Local Charity

San Angelo Chapter Food Drive

In the spirit of "people helping people," last week the San Angelo Chapter of credit unions collected 247 pounds of non-perishable foods from their members and staff, and donated all of it to Rust Street Ministries. The ministry provides temporary assistance with food, clothing, household items, and furniture—at no charge—to those living in the San Angelo area.

San Angelo Federal Credit Union President/CEO Laura Whisenhunt and Concho Valley Credit Union Loan Officer Carmen Meyer delivered the hefty donation to Rust Street Ministries. Trans Texas Southwest Credit Union President Toni Sudduth also helped with the donation efforts.   

"Janet Branham, administrative assistant for Rust Street Ministries, and

her staff were extremely grateful for the donation and offered to give us a tour of their facility," Whisenhunt said. "They are in the middle of remodeling one of their warehouses because they continue to grow. They have their process and procedures down to a fine art, and are very organized."

Last year, the chapter donated 204 pounds to the Concho Valley Food Bank. When Rust Street Ministries doesn't have enough to feed the local families in need, they must buy some of their food from the food bank. The chapter hopes to top the 247 pounds of food next year.

Whisenhunt says, "Carmen and I left there feeling very thankful for what we have and knowing that we helped make a difference in many families' lives for their Thanksgiving meal. When credit unions unite for good, we do make a difference."
