SPRINGFIELD – IH Credit Union announced it is donating the old R&M Federal Credit Union building to the Springfield Soup Kitchen.
The R&M Federal Credit Union closed in February of 2016 after a merger with IH Credit Union. The building had housed R&M FCU for about 25 years. IH Credit Union wanted the building to serve a purpose in the community, so the decision was made to donate it to the Springfield Soup Kitchen.
“We are proud to be able to help the Springfield Soup Kitchen in this way, because we believe their mission to help those in need is so important,” said Robb White, CEO of IH Credit Union.
Carolyn Stegner began the soup kitchen in 2008 by cooking for those in need out of her home. She believed that a place that served meals for the homeless and needy was needed in Springfield. Through the help and advice of others and through her hard work, her vision grew. In 2011, the Springfield Soup Kitchen moved to a new location and most recently serves an average of 250 people. The old R&M FCU building will serve as storage for the organization.
IH Credit Union membership is open to anyone who lives in Ohio.
