For the second consecutive year, Erie Federal Credit Union (Erie FCU) they will donate $30,000 to 10 local food agencies and nonprofits to fight hunger.

The “Give Hope – Feed the Need” campaign is in response to the increased demand for food assistance and hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As was the case last year, local food-based charities are still in need of support to realize the full impact
of their mission to serve those less fortunate” said Brian Waugaman, CEO of Erie FCU. “Adhering to the
credit union philosophy of ‘People Helping People’, Erie FCU is wholly committed to providing support to
these community resources so desperately in need this holiday season.”
