Security Service FCU Sponsors Food Drive and Run for Families
Tuesday, December 30, 2014 6:55 AM

Security Service FCU Volunteers
Security Service Federal Credit Union volunteers fought hunger in Southwest Texas by collecting turkeys, food and cash during the month-long Food4SA Food Drive benefitting the San Antonio Food Bank.

Thousands of generous families across the San Antonio area helped the San Antonio Food Bank meet and exceed its million pound goal during the agency’s month-long, city-wide Food4SA drive in November. In all, 1,604,448 pounds of food was collected—enough to make nearly one million meals.

Food4SA is sponsored by Security Service, H-E-B, Magic 105.3, News 4 San Antonio and the San Antonio Express-News. Security Service Federal Credit Union has been the lead sponsor for the annual drive since its beginning 12 years ago.

“It was a record year for the food drive thanks to our members and the San Antonio area community,” said Brandy Ralston-Lint, vice president of public relations for Security Service. “Their generosity is so much more than just a donation of food—it’s a message of caring and hope for those in need.”

Security Service also participated in the Food Bank’s annual turkey roundup, collecting 203 frozen turkeys to give to families for Thanksgiving.

Then on Thanksgiving morning, several Security Service employees participated in the annual Great Turkey Challenge in downtown San Antonio.

Brandon Blanchard, David Holdbrook, Derek Smolik, Regina Sanchez, Roxy Quinbar, Blanca Searuggs and Juan Ramirez ran the 5K race, generating funds to support the San Antonio Food Bank’s mission to fight hunger in Southwest Texas. Every $15 generated by registration fees helped provide a turkey dinner to a family in need. Ranking among the top ten runners in their age groups were Smolik (2) and Blanchard (9).
