Welcome to our first-ever Food BANKing campaign!
This October, we’re inviting the local banking community to come together for one purpose: to end hunger in our community.
Banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions will participate in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds, collect the most food and volunteer the most hours for the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Prizes (and bragging rights) will be awarded.
We hope you’ll join us in our efforts!
