During the month of January, Visions Federal Credit Union invited members and employees to bring in non-perishable food items to be donated to four food pantries across the state of New Jersey.

In total, over 600 pounds of food items were donated to Center for Food Action in Englewood and Saddle Brook, Interfaith Food Pantry in Morris Plains, and Sussex Division of Social Services in Newton.

The food drive was held during January, post-holiday season to raise awareness for the growing issue of hunger that exists all year.

“Hunger is an issue all year, but many people only think to donate around the holidays, but our neighbors are in need every day,” explains Mandy DeHate, AVP Marketing at Visions.
