FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GLASS CITY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION HOSTS A FOOD DRIVE,
OCTOBER 29- NOVEMBER 16, FOR LOCAL PANTRIES
TOLEDO, OH: As it gets closer to Thanksgiving, local organizations will be hosting several food drives; Glass City Federal Credit Union is included in that list. However, the credit union has decided to put a spin on their fifth annual food drive by adding a competitive edge.
Glass City has embraced the longest standing rivalry in our area, the Ohio State-Michigan football game. Each of the five branches, located in Maumee, Toledo and Bowling Green, have designed a unique food drive display that embodies the Ohio State-Michigan theme. The displays allow members, or those wishing to make a donation, to choose which team they want to win the food drive, Ohio State or Michigan.
The credit union is asking that members of the community bring in any non-perishable food items, between Monday, October 29, and Friday, November 16, and place them in either the Ohio State or Michigan food drive boxes located at each branch.
The team that collects the most food wins! The credit union will be accepting monetary donations, as well, in which case each dollar donated equals one item.
To reward to the employees of the credit union for their hard work designing the food drive displays, after making a donation, please log onto Glass City’s Facebook page at facebook.com/glasscityfcu and vote for the branch with the best designed display.
Not only are the displays at each branch unique, but so are the food pantries the donations will benefit; the pantries that will receive the donated items by branch are:
• Inner City Youth Ministries – Alexis Branch
• Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry – Bowling Green Branch
• East Toledo Family Center – East Broadway Branch
• Volunteers of America Northwest Ohio – Maumee Branch
• Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Ohio- Secor Branch
So whether you’re a Buckeye or a Wolverine, donate non-perishable food items to the Glass City Federal food drive from October 29 to November 16, and we all win.
