For the tenth year, 1st United Credit Union has teamed up with the Oakland A’s Community Fund in support of Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB).
Through Homeruns for Hunger, 1st United committed to donate $50 to the Food Bank for every home run the A’s hit during the regular season.
“I can’t believe this is our tenth year participating in Homeruns for Hunger. We couldn’t have foreseen the longevity of our partnership with the A’s and Alameda County Community Food Bank. It’s an incredible program. Besides providing much-needed support for our community, it gives us another reason to cheer on our hometown team.”
— Steve Stone, CEO
During September’s Hunger Action Awareness Month, 1st United and the Oakland A’s Community Fund presented a combined $35,000 donation to ACCFB. To date, 1st United has donated over $94,000 through Homeruns for Hunger.
According to ACCFB, one in four Alameda County residents are experiencing some level of food insecurity. That’s why 1st United has also stepped up in 2022 to serve as ACCFB’s official Food Drive host, accepting food donations in their branches all year.
Our in-branch food barrels are over-flowing with donations! And we couldn’t be happier about the generosity of our community and our membership. Thank you to everyone who has participated.
