Pee Dee food bank gets boost from "Skip-A-Pay" program

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Employees at a Florence business helped collect funds for a good cause with a creative promotion over the holidays.

The Pee Dee Federal Credit Union invited members to participate in the popular "Skip-A-Pay" program. It allowed them to skip their regular monthly payment during the month of December for a $25 fee.

After pooling the fees, the PDFCU staff voted to donate it to the local Pee Dee Harvest Hope Food Bank.

"Altogether our members helped us raise just over $2,100 for Harvest Hope this year," said CEO Robin Williamson. The check was presented to Wayne Catoe and Michael Murphy by PDFCU team member Priscilla Hickson.
