(Oakland County), Mich. – May 3, 2018 – Genisys Credit Union will kick off this year’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 9th from 11am to 1pm at their corporate office in Auburn Hills with 96.3 WDVD’s Lauren Crocker on hand as Genisys staff bring in their donated food. The food drive takes place on May 12th with letter carriers from all over the country picking up donated food and bringing it back to the post office where it will be sorted and taken to local food banks. To participate in the food drive, leave a bag of non-perishable food like pasta, cereal, and canned fruits and vegetables out by your mailbox on May 12th.
This year, Genisys has partnered with National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Branch 320, McLaren Oakland, Advanced Disposal and Holiday Extravaganza to provide the grocery bags that will be used to collect donated food in northern Oakland County. The food will then be delivered to local food banks such as Neighborhood House in Rochester, Open Door in Waterford, Lighthouse of Oakland County and the Oxford/Orion FISH pantry to name a few. Last year Branch 320 picked up 320,000 pounds of food and was honored, for the past two years, for collecting the most amount of food in the United States, for their union size.
As part of Genisys’ strong commitment to supporting and giving back to their communities, they will also have volunteers out helping to sort food and get it ready to be delivered to the food pantries. “It’s wonderful that all the food donated stays right here in our communities to support our friends and neighbors,” says Genisys President/ CEO Jackie Buchanan, “we are very proud to be a part of this amazing event.”
