Supporting Local Food Banks and Pantries

ANCHORAGE, Alaska— Alaska USA Federal Credit Union members contributed record-breaking funds in support of the Alaska USA Foundation’s annual Cash for Cans® donation drive, which helps the Foundation support local food banks and pantries.

The event raised more than $98,000 and, with an additional donation from the Alaska USA Foundation, numerous food banks and pantries in Alaska, Maricopa County in Arizona, the High Desert region of California, and Washington State will benefit from the more than $120,000 donation.
