NuMark Credit Union Sponsors Meals for Over 780 Individuals
July & November 2022 – Everyone has the right to have healthy food options available to them, but for many this often is not the case. That is why NuMark Credit Union has their long-standing partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank. During 2022, NuMark had the opportunity to sponsor two Mobile Market events, one on July 19th and another on November 3rd. These events give our hungry neighbors the opportunity to receive healthy groceries for their families.
During these two Mobile Market events, NuMark family and friends volunteered by distributing boxes of food to veterans and their families that live at the Joliet VA Hope Manor. As a line of cars stretched as far as the eye could see, each vehicle left with a full load of boxes containing dairy products, vegetables, meat and more. By the end of these events, 239 families and 781 individuals had been served with healthy food for their families!
“I am so grateful that NuMark takes such a huge part in the Northern Illinois Food Bank.”, said NuMark Credit Union’s Card Services Manager, Tracy Szendzial. “I love that we have so many employees that volunteer their time and truly enjoy doing it! Watching everyone work hard to feed our neighbors and our community just warms my soul, and in today’s world, my soul needs warming! I look forward to working with everyone at all of these events.”
NuMark has been working with the Northern Illinois Food Bank for over 6 years. For each dollar raised, the Northern Illinois Food Bank can stretch their resources to provide $8 worth of food. Over the last six years, from donations and the events that NuMark has sponsored, we have donated over $50,000 to Northern Illinois Food Bank!
