NorthRiver Yacht Club tennis and other members recently donated through the club’s “Be the Change” initiative to raise money for Secret Meals for Hungry Children – a program created by Alabama Credit Union to provide meals for children who can’t access nutritional meals during the weekend while they’re away from school. The meals are discretely slipped into the backpacks of as many hungry children as donations allow.

Tuscaloosa Fire and Rescue Service partnered with the University of Alabama’s University Medical Center to develop ACTION, a program that responds to the less critical needs of the community and reduces costly hospital emergency room transports and care.
