October 30, 2019OnPoint Community Credit Union’s $40,200 contribution, which followed the credit union’s successful Refer-a-Friend Campaign throughout the Summer of 2019, will help to provide more than 120,000 meals for individuals and families throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.

During the two-month campaign, OnPoint members invited friends, family and business associates to join OnPoint. For every new member who opened a new personal or business OnPoint checking account, OnPoint pledged to make a $50 donation to the Oregon Food Bank. As part of the campaign, both the referring member and the new member also each received $50 from OnPoint.

“At OnPoint, we believe in building strong communities by not only supporting financial growth but also well-being,” said OnPoint CEO Rob Stuart. “We’re proud our Refer-A-Friend campaign furthers that mission by bringing together our members, our community and the Oregon Food Bank’s absolutely essential work to eliminate hunger.”

OnPoint presented the check to Oregon Food Bank at the University of Oregon homecoming game against Washington State University on October 26. OnPoint will supplement the Refer-A-Friend donation with an additional $2,500 donation to the local Eugene food bank, FOOD for Lane County.

“At a time when one in nine of our neighbors faces food insecurity, partnerships with organizations like OnPoint are incredibly important,” said Oregon Food Bank CEO Susannah Morgan. “Our shared commitment makes a tangible difference in communities throughout the region, and I want to thank OnPoint members for coming together in such a big way to help end hunger.”
