CAP COM launches food drive to help federal employees


In the wake of the government shutdown, CAP COM Federal Credit Union is lending a helping hand.

In addition to financial assistance, the company is launching a food drive to begin Friday, Jan. 18 and run through Feb. 28, 2019.

They’re hoping to meet the urgent need of local food pantries and nonprofit organizations, which have been depleted during the shutdown. They’re anticipating further strains as weather gets worse.

Recipients from Joseph’s House & Shelter, The Unity House of Troy, Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless, Hope 7 Community Center, and The Food Pantries for The Capital District recieved a check for $1,000.

The most immediate supplies needed include: canned tuna, canned chicken, beans, peanut butter, stuffing, canned vegetables, canned soup, pasta products, pancake mix, sugar and personal care items.
