TruWest is not only the neighboring business to the Phoenix Municipal Stadium, but they are also a longtime supporting sponsor of the Oakland Athletics spring training season. As part of TruWest's 2011 sponsorship game on March 19, they helped make a difference in the community by collecting canned goods and cash donations to benefit United Food Bank. As a ''thank you'' for donations, TruWest gave away free souvenir bandanas.
This is the Credit Union's second year organizing a collection at the spring training game. In 2010, TruWest collected enough food and cash donations to provide 2,575 meals. In an effort to top last year's efforts, TruWest collected enough canned goods and cash donations to provide 4,608 meals for Arizonans who have fallen on hard times.
TruWest Credit Union was pleased to be a part of this great project. As part of the credit union philosophy of ''people helping people'' and TruWest's dedication to making a TruDifference, getting involved in the community is an integral part of TruWest's culture of caring. With the tough economic times at hand, now more than ever, it is important to give back to those in need.
