ORANGE – American First Credit Union (AFCU) donated various supplies to Mary’s Kitchen to aid the homeless population in Orange County.
COVID-19 has changed how so many businesses operate, including non-profits like Mary’s Kitchen who have been serving meals to Orange County’s homeless population singe 1984 and are 100% funded through private donations. When AFCU heard they were in need of basic supplies like one-time use trays and silverware, its Caring First team rushed to purchase and donate them to community partners.
The Credit Union purchased containers, utensils, and other necessary supplies to help ensure the organization could continually provide and support the community with fresh, clean materials amidst COVID 19.
“It was a humbling experience to deliver supplies for our most vulnerable population, especially when one of them is an existing member,” said Andrea Reyes, Senior Business Development Account Executive of American First.
Mary’s Kitchen is open Monday though Saturday, serving over 200 homeless individuals in need every day. AFCU has continually supported their mission by donating funds, supplies, and our time.
