Ameris Bank announces annual food drive

Ameris Bank announces its 5th Annual Helping Fight Hunger food drive initiative. During the month of October, members of the community are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items at local Ameris Bank locations and supporting businesses.  At the end of October, a food bank in every town with an Ameris Bank location will receive the donation of goods collected at the local Ameris Bank location, plus a monetary donation from Ameris Bancorp.

Market President, Tom Hermann stated, “It’s hard to imagine that in our own neighborhoods, there are families who don’t know where they will get their next meal.  If we all give a little, we can make a difference for those who need it most. We encourage members of our community to stop by a local Ameris Bank location during the month of October and place a donation of non-perishable items in the collection box located in the bank’s lobby.”

Ameris Bank encourages employees, customers, and members of the community to donate until October 31, by dropping off non-perishable food items in the Collection Box located inside every Ameris Bank location and at partnering businesses.  For a complete list of Ameris Bank locations, visit us online at amerisbank.com.

Hunger knows no boundaries, it exists everywhere in America. According to FeedingAmerica.org, hunger in America exists for over 49 million people.
