1st United Credit Union knocks community support out of the park with a $10,000 donation to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. The donation wraps up our seventh year participating in the Oakland A’s “Homeruns for Hunger” program coordinated in partnership with 95.7 The GAME (KGMZ-FM) in which we committed to donate $50 to the Food Bank for every Oakland A’s regular season homerun. 

We believe in supporting our local community and our hometown teams. Being able to tie in community giving with local sports teams is an added bonus – members and employees enjoy rooting for their local teams; knowing that every homerun provides food for the community gives that spirit new meaning.  All-in-all, 1st United has donated over $69,000 to the Food Bank through the Homeruns for Hunger over the past seven years.
Our Chief Executive Officer, Steve Stone, and Chief Operating Officer, Ed Renteria, presented the check at a recent A’s game. Elizabeth Gomez, Director of Client Services accepted the check on behalf of the Alameda County Community Food Bank.

We are proud of our community giving and hope your are too.
