Connexus Credit Union donates $10,000 to the Community Food Pantry of Merrill
Connexus Credit Union’s philanthropic program, Connexus Cares, is proud to give back to the community with a $10,000 donation to the Community Food Pantry of Merrill.
The Community Food Pantry of Merrill is choice-based pantry located in the Menard Center in Merrill, Wisconsin. The pantry relies on the generosity of the community members through food and financial donations, as well as close collaborations with Feeding America and other local organizations. Each month, over 600 individuals receive food supplies from the pantry. The $10,000 donation from Connexus Cares will ensure that families in the Merrill community, and the greater Lincoln County, will continue to have access to food.
“We are grateful for the hard work and dedication that the Community Food Pantry of Merrill puts forth for those in need,” said Boyd Gustke, Connexus President and Chief Executive Officer. “Keeping individuals and families nourished, especially this time of the year and with the challenges of the pandemic, is vital for the overall health and success of our community. Connexus is proud to support the effort to make a difference in Merrill and Lincoln County.”
