Marietta, Ga. (May 20, 2020) – LGE Community Credit Union, driven by the mission of “people helping people,” recently completed several initiatives to support the community amid the pandemic.
Lunches for Local Heroes
In an effort to both support local restaurants and show appreciation for front-line medical staff, LGE delivered more than 500 lunches to four local hospitals across the counties it serves. LGE delivered lunches from Four41 South Catering in Canton to Northside Hospital Cherokee, lunches from Cheeseburger Bobby’s in Hiram to Wellstar Paulding Hospital, lunches from Dave Poe’s BBQ in Marietta to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, and lunches from Lucky’s Burgers and Brew in Roswell to Wellstar North Fulton Hospital.

LGE employees organized an internal food drive to support three local non-profit organizations supporting those in the community most affected by the pandemic: MUST Ministries in Marietta, Warehouse of Hope in Douglasville, and North Fulton Community Charities in Roswell.
