Robins Financial Credit Union helps feed the hungry

Macon-based Robins Financial Credit Union recently donated $2,000 to a local food bank just in time for the holidays, according to a Robins Financial Credit Union press release.

“Again this year, the generosity of Robins Financial Credit Union has arrived at a critical time,” Janie Sinclair, interim executive director for Middle Georgia Community Food Bank, said in the press release. “This act of kindness will ensure that a senior has money left over to buy life-saving medication and that a child doesn’t come home to an empty refrigerator.”

Middle Georgia Community Food Bank has facilitated the distribution of millions of pounds of food every year to the hungry in Middle Georgia with help from nonprofit agencies in the 24 Middle Georgia counties.

Through the years, Sinclair said bank officials have learned that those who struggle to make ends meet often find themselves running low on money for food by the end of the month.

“This time of year, that is especially true as heating costs will begin to rise,” Sinclair said in the release. “Thanks to Robins Financial Credit Union, 5,000 meals will be on the table.”

Robins Financial Credit Union is a local not-for-profit financial cooperative with 19 branches in central Georgia. Robins Financial provides financial services to more than 185,000 members and has assets exceeding $2.4 billion. For more information, click here.
