Making a difference for kids

This is the 10th year that the RCU’s compassionate staff have done this. They — not the Credit Union as an institution — raise all the money, buy the backpacks and supplies and carry them over to the Food Bank. Kudos to everyone involved in this extremely worthwhile program! You really do make a difference. David F. Rooney photo
