This year, the Foundation also made donations to two organizations providing relief in the areas devastated by Hurricane Ian. We are hoping that our donations to the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southeast Florida and Save the Children will provide some much-needed relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of our community, both local and extended. We hope that our charitable contribution will ensure that food, water, and emergency shelter are readily available to keep children from harm and help families rebuild their lives.
With your generous donations and the AgFed Credit Union Foundation‘s matching, we more than doubled our contribution to the Children’s National Hospital this year! With your help, we’ve collected $2,226.38! And just in time for the holidays!
During these challenging times, we want to help some of our local non-profits that continue to fight on the front-lines to help families across DC affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you DC Central Kitchen and Bread for the City for continuing to do everything you can to help DC’s most vulnerable and to create opportunities in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate all that you do and we hope that our small gesture of gratitude will help with your efforts to empower our community.
