Conn. CUs answer governors call 50000 for food
MERIDEN, Conn. (9/2/08)--In response to Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell's call for support for her "Care & Share" fund-raising program to feed the hungry, the Connecticut Credit Union Charitable Foundation presented her with a check for $50,000.

The governor created the program to raise $100,000 for the Connecticut Food Bank and Hartford FoodShare, the state's two largest food banks. The foundation's trustees voted overwhelmingly to meet the governor's challenge, said Mary Ann Pollaro, executive director at the foundation. "The foundation raises its funds through special programs throughout the year, such as our annual raffle and the Dick Abely Memorial Golf Tournament, so it's really Connecticut credit unions and their members who have contributed to this worthwhile program," Pollaro said. On hand to present an additional $7,000 for the program were Anthony Emerson, president/CEO of the Credit Union League of Connecticut; William J. Dokas, president/CEO of American Eagle FCU; and Kelly Fuhlbrigge, vice president, government relations with the league.
