Telhio Credit Union, to honor the legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once again hosted the Feed the Dream food drive in Franklin County, a coordinated effort to help feed families in need in the community. The credit union hugely exceeded its original goal of collecting one ton of food in one day, collecting 18.68 tons of food for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank on January 18.

"We are incredibly proud of the results of this year's Feed the Dream Food Drive," said Jessica Bing, Chief Communications Officer for Telhio. "Our community members and local businesses came together to help us help those in need, and we're so grateful for their support."

Partnering with Telhio for Feed the Dream were COSI, Shaffer Construction & Partners, Sunbelt Tool Rentals and Enterprise Commercial Rentals. Each business donated food or equipment for the drive.
