Advantis Credit Union, Portland, Ore., helped address the Portland area’s need for nonperishable, high-protein foods for hungry families and children. The credit union raised $7,300 in cash contributions and encouraged members and neighbors to help them fill food barrels stationed in branch lobbies. Donors could buy $1 cans of tuna in Advantis branches. A total of 5,000 cans were purchased and donated to the Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division.
