Tri Counties Bank is hosting its 17th Annual Tis the Season Food Drive, in partnership with The Salvation Army. The food drive aims to collect over 50,000 pounds of non-perishable food items from November 13th – December 22nd, 2023 to help families in need throughout California.
The food drive is an opportunity for the general public, local merchants, schools, and other organizations in the community to meet the overwhelming need for food. All donations stay local and assist The Salvation Army with refilling their pantries after the holiday season, so they can continue to feed families throughout the year.
“This food drive and our partnership with The Salvation Army allows us to provide assistance in areas where the most help is needed and continue to make a positive difference in the lives of our community members,” said Scott Robertson, Senior Vice President and Chief Community Banking Officer for Tri Counties Bank. “We are humbled to be able to support those in need, especially during the holiday season.”
Non-perishable or canned food donations can be dropped off at any Tri Counties Bank branch. Monetary donations can be made online at TriCountiesBank.com/TisTheSeason and every dollar donated equates to a pound of food towards the Bank’s goal of 50,000 pounds.
Tri Counties Bank strongly encourages donations of the top non-perishable items requested by The Salvation Army:
• Peanut Butter
• Canned Tuna/Chicken
• Canned Beans/Veggies
• Rice & Whole Grain Pasta
• Canola/Olive Oil
“The Salvation Army is incredibly thankful for community partners like Tri Counties Bank,” said Major John Brackenbury, Divisional Commander of The Salvation Army Del Oro Division. “The support we receive from community partners means thousands of people will not have to decide between going to the grocery store or keeping the lights on. We stand with partners like Tri Counties Bank to help those suffering or in need to have a brighter future.”
