Sheffield, Ala. – Monday, February 28, 2022 – The Bank Independent “Feed a Family for $5” campaign returns March 7 through 25 as part of the 8th annual Food Share drive to benefit local food banks. Donations of non-perishable food items and cash can be dropped off at any Bank location, directly through strategic partner businesses, or by the PayPal link found on bibank.com/help. Bank Independent works with local partner organizations across their seven-county footprint to ensure donations are distributed to area families in need.
“Our Food Share initiative has always been driven by the need to address food insecurity in our community,” said Macke Mauldin, President and CEO of BancIndependent. “The charities we support provide vital assistance for families undergoing hardships. Our efforts help our partners make a positive impact in the lives they serve.”
“Last year, we heard from our local food bank partners that a simple donation of five dollars can feed a family for a day,” said Nikki Randolph, Community Engagement Officer at Bank Independent. “This message really resonated with the community, and thanks to their generous donations, we were able to feed over 5,000 families through our “Feed a Family for $5” campaign.”
Donations will be distributed to local organizations that maintain food banks to fill emergency food needs, to include: Committee on Church Cooperation, Franklin County DHR, Food Bank of North Alabama, Limestone County Churches Involved Inc., Neighborhood Christian Center, Sidney's Safe! Foundation, Manna House in Huntsville, The Meal Barrel Project, Help Center.
As part of ongoing efforts to supplement the annual Food Share drive, the Bank will donate ten cents for every Bank Independent Debit Card transaction made at a grocery store, up to $10,000, between March 7 – 15. The total will be distributed across the local partner organizations.
The Food Share drive is part of Bank Independent’s Helping Hands program, which also includes employee volunteer efforts, donations and sponsorships. Other Share drives include Shelter Share to benefit animal shelters, Toy Share to collect toys for the holidays, and School Share drive for school supplies.
