Taylorville Community Credit Union is holding its third annual Freedom Tree food drive to help local food pantries through the summer months. The drive kicks off today and will run until Friday, July 14th. All boxed and canned food donations, along with any cash donations, will go directly to local food pantries in each of the credit union’s three locations of Taylorville, Litchfield, and Hillsboro.
TCCU President Will Perkins says this is a way for local businesses to have an impact in the community.
Perkins says the credit union started this drive to help alleviate some of the giving slump that happens at food banks during the summer months.
Perkins says you do not have to be a member of the credit union to donate to the cause. All donations to the Taylorville location will go to the Taylorville Emergency Food Pantry.
