Here’s how CAP COM FCU is helping this holiday season. How is your CU assisting those in need?

CAP COM FCU and its charitable giving arm, the CAP COM Cares Foundation, are packing and delivering more than 400 Thanksgiving meals to families in need around the Capital Region this week as part of their annual “Sharing the Harvest” program. What is your credit union doing to help the community this holiday season?

With the logistical support of 65 socially distant CAP COM employee volunteers and Hannaford Supermarkets and in-kind donations from Freihofer’s Bakery, the nonperishable items for the 400 meals were packed at CAP COM headquarters last week, while fresh turkeys were added right before delivery this week.

The deliveries will support organizations such as the Commission on Economic Opportunity, St. Catherine’s Center for Children, Joseph’s House & Shelter, Unity House, Franklin Community Center, Shelters of Saratoga and public schools throughout Albany, Cohoes and Menands.

“Now more than ever, there is an increased need and we’re grateful to our partners and volunteers in the community who are so vital to the success of Sharing the Harvest,” said Chris McKenna, CAP COM FCU’s president/CEO. “Every family deserves to spend Thanksgiving together, enjoying a hot meal and we are thrilled that Sharing the Harvest continues to be a staple program of the CAP COM Cares Foundation.”

This is the ninth year that CAP COM FCU has organized the program.
