Foundation donates to feeding children: The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation granted The Thomas Promise Foundation $10,000 to help the organization fulfill its mission of providing meals to food-insecure children. This grant donation will provide more than 20,000 meals. Thomas Promise is a nonprofit organization that provides bags complete with six meals and snacks for Pasco County students over the weekend, when they would otherwise go without. Currently 26 Pasco schools and more than 1,400 children benefit from this program every week of the school year. Suncoast Credit Union is also sponsoring the Arts and Crafts Village at the Rattlesnake Festival being organized by the Thomas Promise Foundation Oct. 19 and 20 at the Pasco County Fairgrounds. The proceeds of the Rattlesnake Festival will go toward the purchase of food and supplies.
“We appreciate Suncoast Credit Union for considering us worthy of a grant for the third time since I’ve been here,” said Joe Simmons, executive director of the Thomas Promise Foundation.
