CHEYENNE, Wyo., July 26, 2023 (Newswire.com) - WyHy Federal Credit Union, a leading financial institution dedicated to serving its community, is proud to announce a substantial donation of $35,000 to the Food Bank of Wyoming. The donation was made possible through the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) matching grant program. This contribution will support the Food Bank in its mission to provide nutritious meals to individuals and families facing food insecurity across the state.
"The donation from WyHy will help Food Bank of Wyoming source, purchase, and distribute enough food for over 100,000 meals to Wyoming neighbors in need, and it couldn't come at a better time," expressed Executive Director Rachel Bailey. "There has been a significant increase in need over the past year for accessible food across the state. Many hard-working Wyomingites have been forced to make tough decisions when it comes to their food budget. No one should have to choose between medication and food, which is why Food Bank of Wyoming is grateful for partners like WyHy that invest in the communities they serve to ensure that anyone in need has nutritious food available to them."
WyHy's commitment to the well-being and nourishment of the community is exemplified by this substantial donation. The $35,000 contribution will directly impact the lives of individuals and families, providing them with access to vital food resources during challenging times.
