Tucson Federal Credit Union Holds Contest for Community Food Bank


Tucson Federal Credit Union held a “Christmas in July” competitive food drive to benefit the Community Food Bank during the month of July. All six TFCU branches as well as the corporate office participated in the contest. The goal was to collect one ton. The location that collected the most food won a trophy and a brick on the Community Food Bank’s Camino de Esperanza, or Path of Hope.

TFCU surpassed its goal, collecting 2221.5 pounds of food. They also collected $334.66 in cash donations, which translates to $3,011.94 worth of food that can be distributed by the food bank. The Sahuarita Branch, located at 15950 S. Rancho Sahuarita Blvd. in the Fry’s Marketplace, won the competition with 661 pounds of food collected.

The next food drive competition will take place from mid-November to mid-December.

FCU was founded in 1937 as Tucson Teachers Federal Credit Union. TFCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers, or attends school in Pima County.
