As the charitable holiday season approaches, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is thrilled to celebrate Giving Tuesday on November 28, 2023, with an extraordinary Matching Gift Pledge from our esteemed partners, Genisys Credit Union!
“Genisys Credit Union is proud to partner with The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan this Giving Tuesday for a match campaign. Doubling the power of every contribution, we can create a ripple effect of generosity in the fight against hunger,” said Jackie Buchanan, President, and CEO of Genisys Credit Union.
Giving Tuesday, initiated in 2012, has become a global force, inspiring millions to give back. As we approach November 28, 2023, hearts worldwide are gearing up for a season of generosity. The movement, which has raised billions for crucial causes, encourages diverse acts of kindness and community involvement. The Food Bank, in the spirit of Giving Tuesday, is not only warming hearts but also plates, extending generosity to those in need.

Many households are grappling with the challenges of rising prices on essential items such as groceries, gas, and utilities. Families are facing tough choices when their income doesn’t cover necessities, but food should never be a choice. Our neighbors in need can turn to food pantries and soup kitchens, where the Food Bank’s network of hunger relief agencies is ready to provide fresh produce, dairy products, meat, proteins, and pantry staples.
When you support the Food Bank this Giving Tuesday, your contribution can have twice the impact, thanks to the generous matching gift pledge from Genisys Credit Union. These funds have made a significant difference in the lives of those experiencing food insecurity throughout eastern Michigan. To amplify the impact of your contribution, make your donation at FBEM.org on November 28th!
