SCU has given annually since 2005

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (December 1, 2017) --- Service Credit Union donated $10,000 and 1,326 pounds of food to the New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charites NH, in order to help the citizens of New Hampshire.

Service Credit Union President/CEO David Van Rossum recently presented the check to New Hampshire Food Bank Executive Director Eileen Groll Liponis to help keep the shelves well stocked.

The food bank is expected to distribute close to 13 million pounds of food to more than 400 nonprofit agencies throughout the state this year.

Service Credit Union has made a considerable donation annually since 2005 to assist the agency during its critical times of need. New Hampshire Food Bank officials describe this year’s demand for food as one of its most severe in years so SCU’s contribution could not have come at a better time.

 “We thank Service Credit Union for being a tremendous supporter of the New Hampshire Food Bank for many years,” Groll Liponis said. “This donation in particular comes at a time when the people of the state really need it. This has been a remarkable partnership throughout the years.”

“Service Credit Union is honored to help the New Hampshire Food Bank fulfill its mission of helping the less fortunate.” said Van Rossum.  “This donation embodies the credit union philosophy of people helping people.”
