We’re Hosting a Food Drive…Are you Hungry to Help?

This holiday season many local charitable organizations are working hard to replenish food supplies for those in need right here in our communities.  In order to do our part to help alleviate hunger, we’re hosting an association-wide food drive.

 

If you’re hungry to help, join our food drive by dropping off non-perishable food items to your local Farm Credit office from now through December 20th.  If you do, you’ll be entered to win a custom Farm Credit Longaberger basket filled with goodies.
