Annual Ending Hunger Fundraising Results Luncheon Scheduled

We are in the final weeks of 2023 fundraising for the Campaign for Ending Hunger. The League is requesting that credit unions report their 2023 fundraising totals—including food donations—to Jen Burke by January 8, 2024.

Which credit union will raise the most dollars? Will the Campaign have another million-dollar fundraising year? You can find out the answers to these questions and hear from inspirational guest speakers at the annual Ending Hunger Results Luncheon, taking place on February 13, 2024, from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn Freeport Downtown.

There is no cost to attend the special event but registration is required. Credit unions are asked to limit registrants to three representatives per credit union. Additional staff may attend if space allows.

To secure your registration, please visit the League’s website by February 5, 2024,
