(5/27/09)--Members and employees of Credit Union of Southern California (CU SoCal) and staff from several other credit unions and businesses fed more than 3,000 local residents in need lunch while they donated more than 100,000 pounds of food valued at $200,000. The Fifth Annual Food Distribution Day at CU SoCal's Whittier branch, held May 16, was part of the Southern California's Helping Hands, in conjunction with Heart of Compassion. The event prompted one member to say, "No bank does this like my credit union. I have never seen anything like it. CU SoCal really cares about people. You don't just bank here.
