Proceeds from Credit Unions' Candy Bar Sales Support Euclid Hunger Center
Proceeds from a yearlong candy bar sale at several area credit unions will provide about 1,400 meals for the Euclid Hunger Center to serve local families.
In February, Eaton Family Credit Union CEO Mike Losneck presented a check for $350 to Euclid Hunger Center Manager Kay O’Donnell. She said the money will be used to get food from the Cleveland Foodbank to distribute as meals for hungry Euclid residents.
According to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, for every $1 donated, four meals can be provided to people in the community.
Losneck said the annual candy bar sale is a collaboration of 10 credit unions from Lake and Cuyahoga counties known as the Northeast Credit Union Outreach Alliance. Each credit union sells candy bars at its branches, the proceeds are pooled together and then split amongst food pantries in the credit unions’ membership areas.
Credit unions participating this year include Cardinal Community CU, L.E.O CU, LCE FCU, Lake County Educational FCU, Bailey Controls FCU, Best Rewards FCU, Eaton Family CU, Painesville CU, ACME FCU, and Willoughby-Eastlake Schools CU.
