The Annual Premier Federal Credit Union Hot Dog Sale: A Tasty Example of People Helping People

For the last few summers, the staff at Premier Federal Credit Union has set aside a day to put together a Hot Dog Sale outside their Greensboro headquarters on Yanceyville Street. This event is not only fun, but also quite the bargain – you can get two yummy made-to-order hot dogs, chips, homemade dessert and a drink for five bucks.    

So I grabbed the video camera Friday and zipped over to this year’s sale. Despite my resolve this year to make healthier food choices, my mom always told me when you go visit someone, Southern etiquette dictates that you have at least a little of everything on the table.

Three hot dogs (made all-the-way), a bag of chips, drink and two chocolate cookies later … Mission Accomplished, Mom! 🙂

Seriously though, the staff at Premier works hard to get donated food from area businesses, make homemade desserts and set up to serve on the day of the Hot Dog Sale.

It’s all for charity – this year the Victory Junction Gang Camp gets the proceeds. In the years they’ve been doing this, thousands of dollars have been raised for charities near and dear to the staff’s hearts. Good going folks – thanks for yet another wonderful (and yummy!) example of people helping people in action!
