North Shore Hunger Heroes

Calling all Hunger Heroes... because up here, nobody should go hungry.

At North Shore Federal Credit Union, we know that pleas to end hunger don’t always hit home. It’s easy to think that hunger is a problem somewhere else. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. It’s a big problem on the North Shore too. The reasons our neighbors may struggle to feed their families are complicated and many, but we can do something about it.

March Hunger Hero Campaign Going On NOW!

March is National Food Shelf Month and we are calling on you to become a North Shore Hunger Hero. During the month of March, NSFCU will be matching donations and monthly pledges up to $3,000 total! ALL proceeds will be donated to the Food Shelves in Cook and Lake Counties as part of National Food Shelf Month. As part of this campaign, donated funds will be matched by participating programs effectively quadrupling your donation. Already a Hunger Hero? Please consider increasing your monthly donation or making an additional one-time donation during this campaign. Together we are making a difference in ending hunger in our community. How cool is that?

Become a North Shore Hunger Hero

Whenever we have asked you, our members, to support people in our community, you’ve come through with flying colors. Every time. That’s why we know you’ll join us in becoming a North Shore Hunger Hero. It’s a simple challenge: we are asking all NSFCU members to pledge a monthly donation to our North Shore Hunger Hero initiative. ALL proceeds will be donated to the Food Shelves in Cook and Lake Counties as well as the Backpack food programs in Lake Superior and Cook County School systems and community food distributor Ruby's Pantry.

Any gift amount helps. $1 each month adds up, $10 adds up even faster. The bottom line is that your donations will help to double the annual funding of these programs.

Your part is simple

The next time you visit a branch, just tell us you want to be a North Shore Hunger Hero. Designate a dollar amount, sign your permission and we will do the rest. Even easier, sign up online through NSFCU E-branch under "My Account". Either way only takes a few seconds.

Throughout the year, NSFCU will hold promotional events encouraging participation in this program including matching donation opportunities and drawings for our Hunger Hero members! These promotional events will be run annually in March, July and December!
