Impact Saginaw Provides Meals to Saginaw Children
With schools closed for the remainder of the school year due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the need to provide healthy nutritious food to Saginaw children is greater than ever. Impact Saginaw Area Credit Unions are proud to partner with Sodexo Magic and First Student to provide food to in-need Saginaw students.
Since school was closed in March, Sodexo and First Student have been providing meal deliveries Mondays through Saturdays to approximately 2,000 children by bus to their neighborhoods. This is a huge investment in resources and manpower and Impact Saginaw has committed $11,500 to help these wonderful organizations in their fight against hunger in the community.
“These are unprecedented times for our community and we all need to work together to ensure that the children in our neighborhoods are fed”, states Gerald Hutto, President/CEO of Team One Credit Union and spokesperson for Impact Saginaw. “I am so proud of all the Credit Unions who make up Impact Saginaw, we all saw the need and immediately stepped up to help.”
To support local businesses as well, Impact Saginaw is coordinating meals to be provided by local restaurants including Maria’s Mexican Restaurant, Valerie’s Downtown and Richie Rich’s Deli that will supplement the food provided by Sodexo and delivered by First Student.
