According to the Maryland Food Bank, Marylanders miss over 100 million meals each year. The holiday season is one of the busiest and most challenging times of year to meet the needs of Marylanders impacted by food insecurity.

The donation from Point Breeze Credit Union will help meet the immediate needs of Marylanders by providing an additional 60,000 meals to communities in need this holiday season.

“We can’t thank Point Breeze Credit Union enough for not only hosting an outstanding event but capping it off with such a generous donation,” said Carmen Del Guercio, President & CEO of the Maryland Food Bank. “Because of their efforts, we’ll be able to distribute enough food to provide an additional 60,000 meals to people in need across the state. We truly appreciate all of their hard work.”

“We are honored to make this donation in support of the Maryland Food Bank’s mission and their efforts to reduce hunger in our community,” said Bernie McLaughlin, President and CEO of Point Breeze Credit Union. “A critical part of Point Breeze Credit Union’s mission is ‘People helping people,’ and so we are thrilled to have brought the community together to “harvest” funds and address local food insecurity.”

“The Harvest” was held Oct. 22 at Hayfields Country Club, where over 100 golfers were in attendance. Hayfields is one of the region’s premiere championship golf courses, stretching more than 7,000 yards in picturesque Northern Baltimore County.
