CAP COM Launches Food Drive, Financial Assistance In Wake Of Government Shutdown



CAP COM Federal Credit Union is lending a hand to its members who are impacted by the partial government shutdown. In addition to financial assistance, the credit union is launching a food drive to begin Friday January 18 and run through February 28, 2019.

CAP COM is striving to meet the urgent need of local food pantries and nonprofit organizations. Their supplies have been depleted during the shutdown, and they anticipate further strains when Code Blue weather conditions strike. 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.

Non-perishable food collection sites are located at all 11 CAP COM branch locations. Volunteers from the CAP COM Cares Foundation will make frequent deliveries to multiple local food pantries and nonprofits. Recipients include 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. Monetary donations are also being sought to enable the food pantry’s efforts to reach even more people in need by purchasing specific supplies.

To donate, text FOODDRIVE19 to 41444 or stop by a CAP COM branch.

In addition to the six-week food drive, CAP COM is helping eligible federal workers in need by offering debt payment relief, payment deferments on loans and credit cards, and mortgage forbearance for first-position mortgages. A team from CAP COM is also providing personal counseling to members to address each unique situation and handle inquiries on financial assistance and eligibility.

For more information on financial assistance, CAP COM members are asked to visit: www.capcomfcu.org/assist
