Double the Donation - USSFCU's Virtual Fundraiser in Support of Local Food Banks

Double the Donation in Support of Feeding America®

Alexandria, VA - U. S. Senate Federal Credit Union (USSFCU) is teaming up with members, staff and local communities to raise money for Feeding America®. It's called Double the Donation and it’s USSFCU’s virtual food bank fundraising drive.

Details of the fundraiser came last week after USSFCU Board of Directors pledged $45,000 to assist local food banks in their efforts to combat increased hunger due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Of the donation, $15,000 will be distributed to food banks throughout Maryland, including the Maryland Food Bank, Manna Food Center in Montgomery County, and pantries in Prince George’s County. The remaining $30,000 will be split equally between the Capital Area Food Bank and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, two of the area’s largest food banks operating within the Feeding America® network.

Their goal is to raise $30,000 by May 31, 2020, $15,000 for Capital Area Food Bank and $15,000 for Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, doubling USSFCU’s donation to Feeding America®You can donate to either food bank at the virtual donation site links below:

U.S. Senate Federal Credit Union President and CEO Tim Anderson hopes to help get the word out about the virtual food drive and the importance of giving to help feed our neighbors in need.

“Covid-19 is a crisis unlike any other. Now, more than ever, our neighbors need our help. With job disruptions, school closures, and health risks, millions are turning to food banks for support. We are calling upon the community to help us double the donation."

- Timothy L. Anderson U.S. Senate Federal Credit Union President and CEO

Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, has recently announced an estimated $1.4 billion in additional resources will be needed over the next six months to provide enough food for our neighbors struggling with hunger.

USSFCU’s Double the Donation virtual fundraiser will run through the month of May. Their hope is meeting a cumulative goal of $30,000 in additional funds in support of Capital and Blue Ridge Area Food Banks. All donations will go towards helping food banks respond to COVID-19.

Provides excellent customer service and this is demonstrated by their great attention to detail. USSFCU provides excellent financial products and professional communication.

I joined in 1975 when I began my 41 year career in the U.S. Senate. It was a family and still is - one to be depended on in times of need and for advice.

The credit union provides relatively good services and the security updates to the system are noticeable.

All of my children and grandchildren have USSFCU accounts now. I really admire USSFCU and its staff completely, they have always looked out for my interests.

Outstanding online and mobile banking services. Professional, Courteous, knowledgeable responsive staff!

I am very satisfied to belong to this institution and whenever I need support it is good to know that I count on you.

This credit union is the best, I love the customer service and you can?t beat the interest rates. And I?m happy to be a member of this great credit union.

Great staff helping all the time. Just a very well run company always good service.

Always good service, especially when I telephone in. I have another credit union where, every time I call in, I have to wait a considerable amount of time before reaching a representative. When I worked on the Hill, it always was a pleasurable experience coming to the credit union office, whether to make a deposit or apply for a loan.

Customer service via the phone is very helpful and easy to accomplish requests.

Care about their clients and concerned about making sure they have the best rates and packages.
