ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – Alaska USA Federal Credit Union members contributed generous funds in support of the Alaska USA Foundation’s annual Cash for Cans® donation drive, which helps the Foundation support local food banks and pantries in the communities we serve.

Alaska USA Federal Credit Union and the Alaska USA Foundation teamed up for the fundraiser, collecting cash donations at Alaska USA branches during the month of September, which is National Hunger Action Month. The event raised more than $108,000, including an additional donation from the Alaska USA Foundation. With this donation, numerous food banks and pantries in Alaska, Maricopa County in Arizona, the High Desert region of California, and Washington State will benefit and be able to further combat local hunger.

“It is so rewarding to know that our members continue to support our efforts to assist and help individuals and families struggling to put food on their tables,” said Executive Director, Dan McCue, Alaska USA Foundation. “Through their generous support, we are able to help feed children, families and seniors who struggle with food insecurities by providing funds to local food banks and pantries.”
