NCUA Employees Robust In Food Bank Giving
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (10/17/13)--National Credit Union Administration employees increased their donations to an area food bank by 961% this year. They gave more than 22,000 pounds of food to the Capital Area Food Bank through the Feds Feed Families program; it is expected to help more than 18,000 residents of the Washington metropolitan area.
 
NCUA employees of all levels participated in the food drive and to achieve the record-breaking results, several NCUA office directors offered to match staff contributions by as much as four to one.

"The staff at NCUA really stepped up, and this year's charity drive was nothing short of amazing," NCUA Chair Debbie Matz said in a release. "In a time when food banks are reporting historically high levels of requests for help, NCUA staff responded to the need energetically and creatively. "
 
Since the Feds Feed Families annual food drive began in 2009, federal workers have donated and collected 15.2 million pounds of food and other non-perishable items to support families across the United States. More than 85% of federal workers live and work outside the Washington D.C. area.
