Food Share Drive Raises Over $7,000 and 300+ Donations

Sheffield, Ala. – Tuesday, June 11, 2024 - Bank Independent and the Helping Hands Foundation are proud to announce the successful completion of the 10th Annual Food Share Drive. Thanks to the generosity and support of our community, $1,000 was raised for each partner organization, and over 300 items were shipped directly to them.

Food Share The Results Are In 2024“We are very proud of the success of the 10th Annual Food Share Drive and are deeply grateful for the support of our communities,” said Macke Mauldin, President and CEO of BancIndependent. “This drive demonstrates the power of community coming together to support those in need. We extend our thanks to each person who contributed. Your generosity has made a positive difference in the lives of many families.”

Running from April 29 to May 17, the drive aimed to combat food insecurity and support local organizations across the seven counties served by Bank Independent. Community members contributed both monetary donations and items from Amazon Wishlists specifically curated for each partner. These contributions have stayed within the local communities, directly benefiting families in need.

“We are thrilled with the success of this year’s Food Share Drive and the positive impact it has had on our community,” said Hallie Mauldin, Community Engagement Leader at Bank Independent. “This year, we made several changes to the process to make it more convenient for people to give, including setting up Amazon Wishlists for each partner organization, allowing items to be shipped directly to them. We learned a lot from these changes and overall, we are incredibly proud of the results.

The partner organizations that received the donations include:

  • Help Center of Florence
  • Franklin County DHR
  • The Meal Barrel Project
  • Limestone County DHR
  • Neighborhood Christian Center
  • Manna House in Huntsville
  • Downtown Rescue Mission 

Bank Independent has a long-standing commitment to fighting hunger within the communities it serves. By partnering with these local organizations, the bank ensures that the collected donations are used to support families in need effectively.
