10th Annual Food Drive

First Commonwealth is all about helping people thrive – and that doesn’t stop with just credit union members. We also wish to do our part to create vibrant, thriving communities. Please help us with this goal by contributing to our 10th Annual Food Drive!

It’s easy to take food for granted, but for thousands of people in our area, food insecurity (defined as being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food) is a very real problem. And, unfortunately, the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have only exacerbated the issue for many families. That’s why we’re asking for your help in raising funds for our 10th Annual Food Drive.

This year, in an effort to minimize contact and keep everyone safe, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting an online donation drive via Facebook for you to contribute funds. The event will take place from October 1 through
December 31. All donations will be given to Second Harvest – and for every $1 donated, First Commonwealth will match it up to $250!


Wondering how far a dollar can go in terms of food distribution? Consider this: For every $1 received, the food bank can distribute nine pounds of food – which equates to seven meals. We know these are trying times, and we appreciate your support and assistance in #doingGOOD for those in need.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
