Fibre Federal Credit Union and TLC Support School District Meal Programs

3/20/2020

Fibre Federal Credit Union and TLC, a Division of Fibre Federal Credit Union, are stepping up to help ensure children don’t go hungry while schools are closed.

The credit union pledges to donate up to $55,000, which will be disbursed to help each of the 24 school districts within its service areas across Cowlitz, Wahkiakum, and Pacific counties in Washington and Columbia, Clatsop, Tillamook, and Lincoln counties in Oregon. Collectively, these districts serve over 37,000 total students. The donated funds will act as a supplement to state-funded breakfasts and lunches already offered by schools.

Shannon Cahoon, Community Development Manager for Fibre, said they are taking extra care to be responsive to the needs of local communities during this time, especially students who depend on school breakfasts and lunches as regular meals.

“Taking care of our youth and helping create equitable access to economic stability are two very important tenets of our corporate mission,” Cahoon said. “Meeting the needs of vulnerable students and families during this challenging time is one way we can carry out those goals.”
