ARLINGTON, Texas – Nov. 4, 2021 – Texas Trust Credit Union raised $11,862 for the North Texas Food Bank’s virtual peanut butter drive. The credit union raised the second highest amount out of 61 corporate and other teams competing to raise money to help the food bank stock its shelves with nutritious peanut butter.

Texas Trust collected funds for the virtual peanut butter drive from employees, totaling $5,931. The Texas Trust Gives Foundation matched the employee donations, bringing the grand total donation to $11,862. As a virtual drive, it made it easy for everyone to participate.
