Thanks to its members' commitment to a community-first mindset, WyHy just made a $5,000 donation to the Wyoming Food Bank of The Rockies, an organization that's working on the front lines to serve people most impacted by this ongoing public health crisis.
"We want to ensure those affected by this COVID-19 crisis get the food they need to feed their families," said the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies, Director, Tony Woodell. "We're doing everything we can to make life easier for our neighbors during this difficult time. And it is partners like WyHy Federal Credit Union who are helping us offset the costs to feed Wyoming families in need."
