Ascend is donating $25,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, which includes $2,264 in donations from credit union members. The total donation will pay for more than 190,000 meals for Middle Tennesseans.
Ascend’s members were encouraged to make donations to Second Harvest via a special link provided by the credit union during November. The credit union not only matched member donations, dollar-for-dollar, but decided to go the extra mile and increase the overall donation to $25,000.
“Our members led the way in making this donation possible, and I’m very proud of them,” Ascend President and CEO Caren Gabriel said. “This is neighbor helping neighbor. As we’ve said in messaging to our members during this campaign, together we can make a difference.”
Ascend employees also held a corporate-wide food drive, collecting enough food to donate to 27 different agencies in Middle Tennessee.
