Building a better community
Join our efforts to raise $3,000 by June 30.
It’s always wonderful to volunteer in the community, but these challenging times are making that very difficult. Yet many families are still struggling and need a little help.
This month, do an act of kindness that takes nothing but a few dollars. Rio Grande Credit Union has two opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people in our community. A few dollars here and there can truly add up. Here is something more: Rio Grande Credit Union will match your donations, up to $1,000 for each effort. That means if we raise $3,000 for the three efforts, we're giving $2,000 to each, for a total of $6,000!
Help us raise money for food for those in need.
Rio Grande has set up two "Virtual Food Drives" to benefit the Storehouse and Roadrunner Food Bank. New Mexico ranks among the worst in the nation for hunger, for both children and adults. Unfortunately it's even worse right now. So, why two efforts?
- Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico is the largest hunger relief organization in the state. They are able to help neighboring counties who are struggling more than the Albuquerque metro area.
- The Storehouse focuses on the "working poor." Folks who have jobs but may not make enough money at the moment to provide enough food for their families or pets. The Storehouse runs very efficiently thanks to lots of helpful volunteers, 96 cents of every dollar goes to feed hungry families.
- Why money instead of food? Because it is difficult to gather food right now. Additionally, the food banks can make your money go further than you can because of relationships with grocers and others. They can turn $1 into 5 meals!
