Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union, Fox 9 and Minnesota food banks teamed up once again this holiday season for Coins for a Cause.

Donations during Coins for a Cause went to Second Harvest Heartland or local Feeding America food banks. Every dollar donated helped and provided three meals to Minnesotans experiencing hunger. Affinity Plus in Cambridge hosted an in-person donation event on Dec. 10 where people were able to drive up and donate their change. The first 50 donors received a holiday gift bag, courtesy of Affinity Plus and Fox 9.

Affinity Plus accepted donations of loose change inside participating branches from Monday, Dec. 6, through Thursday, Dec. 9, during normal business hours in an effort to match up to $25,000 in monetary donations for food banks across the state.

“Due to the snowy weather throughout the week and across the state, our branches raised $16,000. Affinity Plus will match those donations and will provide additional funding for a total of $50,000 to be donated to local food banks around the state,” Paige Comer said with Affinity Plus.
