Fill A Truck

No one should ever go hungry…but unfortunately, our community has some of the highest rates of food insecurity in the NATION. But we can help. Southeastern Credit Union has teamed up with other community partners such as Langdale Honda, Black Crow Media, Valdosta State University, and others to help raise awareness and combat hunger.
The 4th Annual “Fill A Truck” initiative is underway and we want to continue to make an impact. Last year, we were able to collect more than 76,000 of food–that translated to more that 50,000 meals for those in need. This year we want to do even more! We’ll be assisting agencies such as LAMP, The Soup Kitchen, The Caring Place, Tiftarea Community Foodbank, and Concerted Services. So what can you do to help?
You can make a donation of either money or non-perishable food items at the following locations:

  • All branches of Southeaster Credit Union (money and non-perishable food items)
  • All branches of the South Georgia Regional library locations (food only)
