Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Food Drive

January 16, 2023 - February 18, 2023

“People Helping People” is the principle foundation of our core values at CommonWealth One and the cornerstone of the credit union movement. This philosophy has shaped the way we do business, from the products and services we offer you and the financial education programs we institute.

Annually, we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through a day of service to support to those in need within our community. This year, we are hosting a winter food drive.

Now through February 18, we’re asking you to team up with us for our MLK Jr. Day of Service Winter Food Drive. All proceeds will benefit food banks in the greater Washington D.C. area through the Capital Area Food Bank and in the Harrisonburg area through Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

In addition to monetary donations, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items at designated branches. We invite you to drop off your donations at the branch locations noted below now through February 18, 2023. If you stop by to drop off your donation at either our Main or Harrisonburg Regional Branch on Saturday, January 28 between 9:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., you will receive a free CommonWealth One reusable grocery tote bag!

Please review the information below for a complete list of items we will be collecting and their drop-off points.
