(August 30, 2022, Hagåtña, Guam)
As part of its 60th Anniversary celebration, Community First Guam Federal Credit Union has committed to completing 60 Acts of Community as a way to give back to the people of Guam. For Act 2 of these 60 Acts, Community First will be holding a supply drive for Harvest House, a local nonprofit that aims to help the children and teens of the island by providing them with a safe space to live and grow and the Guam Homeless Coalition, a group that addresses the needs of Guam’s homeless population.
Gerard Cruz, President and CEO of Community First, said, “The work that Harvest House and the Guam Homeless Coalition do to serve our residents who are in great need is truly inspiring, and we wanted to do our part to support their mission. We invite our members and our community at large to join us in helping our neighbors in need.”
The supply drive started on Monday, August 29 and will go on for two weeks, ending on Saturday, September 10. Donations can be dropped off at any Community First Member Service Center during business hours – Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Fridays from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Dededo and Tamuning only).
For this supply drive, Community First is asking the public for the following donations:
Diapers of all sizes and pull-up diapers
Feminine hygiene products
Toothpaste (children’s and adult) and toothbrushes
Combs and hairbrushes
First aid kits
Dry food goods that are easy to open and cook
(i.e. pop-top canned goods, ramen, cereal, etc.)
New underwear of all sizes
New socks of all sizes
“Community First has always been about putting our island’s people first,” said Cruz. “We hope that through this supply drive, we can address the immediate needs of our island’s most vulnerable and support two nonprofit organizations that do incredible work in our community.”
