For the fifth consecutive year, Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union made a donation to America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend. This year their donation is for $15,000. America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend CEO, Rick Minor, accepted the check from Gulf Winds team and board members.
“This donation will help to feed those who are hungry during a tough time of year,” said Minor. “We are dependent upon the generosity of donors like Gulf Winds to provide food to those that would not have it otherwise. We are so grateful for the continued support because there are so many people that are in need in our communities, more than ever before.”
"America’s Second Harvest has been in the community for more than 30 years serving those in need,” said Gulf Winds President/CEO Chris Rutledge. “We believe it is important to invest in the organizations that are here every day working in the community.”
