HFS Federal Credit Union Raises Over $25K for The Food Basket

Hilo, HI. (November 25, 2022) – Each day, members of our Hawai’i Island community are experiencing food insecurity. The ever-increasing cost of food and challenges from the pandemic has caused a dramatic increase in the number of those needing assistance.

The Food Basket’s mission is to end hunger in Hawai’i County and HFS Federal Credit Union has stepped up to help meet the needs of our island’s ‘ohana. Throughout the month of October 2022, monetary donations were collected at 6 branch locations island wide.  As a token of appreciation and for a minimum donation, donors received an HFS Tote Bag or Cap.

Through the generous donations of the credit union’s members and staff, a total of $25,100 was raised for The Food Basket!

“With inflation increasing the cost of gas, utilities, housing and food, many families are finding they don't have money left for groceries after paying their bills, especially at the end of the month.  This incredible donation from HFS Federal Credit Union will go directly towards purchasing food for our island neighbors in need this holiday season, helping to keep food on the tables of those who are struggling the most. Our warmest mahalos  going out to HFS Federal Credit Union staff and members for their extraordinary generosity and providing essential food relief to make this season brighter for so many in our Hawai`i Island community!”  - Kristin Frost Albrecht, Executive Director of The Food Basket, Hawai’i Island’s Food Bank

HFS considers it an honor and a privilege to support great organizations, like The Food Basket, that serve the community. It is because of support from their members and Big Island organizations that HFS is the place “where caring counts” for the past 85 years and counting.

HFS Federal Credit Union (HFS FCU) is the largest not-for-profit and member-owned financial institution on Hawai’i Island. Established by just nine individuals in 1937, HFS started with very humble beginnings. The Credit Union continued to grow from serving just employees of the Federal and Territorial Governments in the County of Hawai‘i and their families, to now offering membership to any person who lives, works or attends school on Hawai’i Island.
