Augusta, GA (PRWEB) October 15, 2016
Queensborough National Bank & Trust is partnering with Golden Harvest Food Bank to distribute over 7000 lbs. of grocery products on October 15 and October 29 in an effort to end hunger in local communities. The Golden Harvest Mobile Pantry will take place on October 15 at 9 AM at the Louisville United Methodist Church on 301 W 7th St., GA and October 29 at 9 AM at Downtown Tennille Square in Tennille, GA.
Rain or shine, Queensborough National Bank and its employees will work beyond normal hours to hand out 7000 lbs. of food until everything is given out. Known as the food pantry on wheels, the Golden Harvest Mobile Pantry is able to hold food and critical grocery products including fresh produce, meat, canned goods, etc.
For nearly six years, Queensborough has partnered with Golden Harvest Food Bank to end hunger in areas where the bank has a presence. Since November 2010, Queensborough National Bank has hosted and funded 37 mobile pantry events and distributed over 190,000 lbs. of food to the hungry.
Amy Jones, Queensborough National Bank and Trust Marketing Manager, says, “These events help take the pressure off of local food pantries and get food to families that may not have a food pantry nearby… Our employees, customers and local community groups have overwhelmingly supported the drive to reach the hungry in their community. We know we are making an impact,” explains Jones, “the look on the faces of people we help and the comments of appreciation we receive makes a powerful statement to our volunteers. Some employees bring their children to help and show by example what giving is all about.”
