U.S. Bank branches collecting food for March campaign
Pine River area residents who want to help provide food for families in need in their community have the opportunity to do so at U.S. Bank branch locations this month.
The 139 U.S. Bank branches in Minnesota are official community collection sites for the 2014 Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. During March, people are welcome to visit any U.S. Bank branch in Minnesota to drop off cash, food, baby care items or personal care item donations for their local food shelf.
“The U.S. Bank team in Pine River is proud to support Minnesota FoodShare and local foodshelves. Donations made at U.S. Bank in Pine River will be given to support the Pine River Food Shelf, which serves people in need in our community,” said Jackie Paschall, branch manager at U.S. Bank in Pine River.
There are more than 300 food shelves in Minnesota. U.S. Bank employees and retail branches raised nearly $62,000 in food and cash donations during the 2013 campaign.
This is the 13th year that U.S. Bank is partnering with Minnesota FoodShare for its March Campaign.
Minnesota FoodShare, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, directs the March Campaign, which is the largest food and cash drive in Minnesota.
