Decatur, Illinois, October 19th, 2021– Land of Lincoln Credit Union (LLCU) is making a total donation of $25,000 to eight (8) different central Illinois area food pantries.

“Credit unions exist to help people, it’s what we do.” states Robert Ares, LLCU President & CEO. “This week, we will celebrate International Credit Union Day on Thursday, a day reserved for raising awareness of the credit union difference, that we are not-for-profit financial institutions dedicated to helping people. We could not think of a better way to express that sentiment than through this donation that will put food on the tables of so many in need in our very own communities.”

LLCU is also celebrating Member Appreciation Week currently, providing treats and prize giveaways to members all week long.
