YWCA-GCR Receives $7,500 to Drive Out Hunger From DeNooyer Chevrolet and SEFCU



To celebrate its 45th Anniversary, DeNooyer Chevrolet partnered with SEFCU to make a difference for the hungry in our community, donating $45,000 to local rescue missions and food pantries. Each month a different organization is selected to receive the funds. In addition, members of the community are encouraged to donate to that organization through SEFCU's text to donate program. SEFCU then matches up to $4,500 of community donations.

YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, Inc. (YWCA-GCR) was the selected charity for November 2016 and received $7,500+.

"We are grateful to be one of the chosen organizations to benefit from the Drive Out Hunger Initiative made possible by DeNooyer and SEFCU in honor of DeNooyer's 45th Anniversary and SEFCU's many social responsible initiatives carried out annually. What a social responsible way to celebrate a business' success - responding to food insecurity throughout the Capital Region. With the support of DeNooyer Chevrolet's $4,500 donation, our community and SEFCU generous match in the month of November, 2016, YWCA-GCR will receive a generous $7500+ donation for our Weekly Community Meal and Food Pantry services. This will help us feed more diners and to provide more individuals and families with 3-day food packages. Thank you, DeNooyer Chevrolet, SEFCU, WTEN, and everyone that contributed to this initiative. Your passion and taking action to address a need in our communities is remarkable. Congratulations to DeNooyer Chevrolet on 45 years of business!" says Daquetta Jones, Executive Director of YWCA-GCR.
