UMe Credit Union Helps to Feed Burbank

This May, UMeHelps will, once again, conduct its annual food drive benefiting BTAC (Burbank Temporary Aid Center).

Building on a strong tradition of community support, UMe Federal Credit Union created its UMeHelps program last year, as a way to give back to the community. As a local credit union, UMe believes in fostering community involvement to provide resources for our neighbors who could use a little extra assistance. UMeHelps partners with local non-profit organizations and focuses on providing goods for those in need.

UMe’s partner for the food drive is BTAC, a Burbank non-profit dedicated to providing the poor, working poor, and homeless of our local community with basic goods and services. Their efforts allow residents in need to live with dignity. They also serve citizens of the city in times of emergency and disaster.

To participate in the UMeHelps BTAC food drive,  please bring nonperishable food items to the credit union during regular business hours throughout the month of May. Red donation tubs will be available throughout the lobby. Visit for a complete list of acceptable donation items, in the news & announcements section.

UMe is located at 3000 W. Magnolia Blvd. in the Magnolia Park neighborhood of Burbank. For more information, call Anita Hutchinson at 818) 238.2900.
