San Diego CA—Cabrillo Credit Union jumped at the opportunity to participate in the Feds Feed Families food drive for the month of July. Between its four locations, Cabrillo employees and members made it possible to contribute over 1,700 pounds of food, benefiting the San Diego Food Bank.
The San Diego Border Patrol Sector partnered with Cabrillo Credit Union in order to collect more donations and make a bigger impact. Cabrillo Credit Union supported their efforts by leaving food collection boxes in each branch. Employees of the credit union alone collectively donated $1,000. At the end of July, the Border Patrol agents picked up boxes filled with food from each Cabrillo branch.
Feds Feed Families is a government-wide campaign that encourages federal employees to donate food, services, and time to food banks and pantries across the country. Since 2009, when Feds Feed Families launched, the campaign has collected more than 92 million pounds of food.
This is Cabrillo’s first year participating in the Feds Feed Families food drive. According to Cabrillo CEO, Michael DeShazo, “Giving back to the community aligns with Cabrillo Credit Union’s core values. As the primary financial institution for those employed by the U.S. Border Patrol and other federal agencies in the San Diego area, Cabrillo Credit Union was happy to help serve our community in this time of need.”
