Rather than discarding a food bank donation box, the team decided to fix it and make it usable again. One of the team leaders, Matt DeKerrie, sandblasted it down to the metal and repainted and primed it. He also added new lettering.
To make a food bank donation, consider purchasing a Bantam Box. It’s a sturdy plastic box with a 3-inch sign on the inside. Your patrons can put coins in it to donate. The package can be reused for different donation campaigns. It has an Allen screw for secure closure.
Wells Fargo Mobile Food Bank
Wells Fargo has pledged a $100,000 donation to the Food Bank of Iowa. The donation coincides with a nationwide food drive. Wells Fargo is giving away food bank donation boxes so that you can help those in need. The donation box is a free PNG image with a transparent background and a resolution of 932×700 pixels.
The food bank will be traveling across the Valley of the Sun each Wednesday, and the company has partnered with the United Food Bank to expand its reach. The mobile food bank will provide food boxes to families needing emergency food. Each week, 300-plus families are expected to visit, and volunteers will place the groceries directly into people’s cars.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many families struggling. With so many food costs, many are forced to make difficult choices between their basic needs. Wells Fargo has a long-standing commitment to helping communities in need. This summer, the bank is hosting food distribution events in 20 cities across the country. The goal is to distribute 50 million meals.
According to the Wells Fargo survey, 83 percent of Americans would instead donate food to their local food bank. The company also donates $5 million to United Ways worldwide. This money will help local United Ways deliver high-impact programs in communities. The bank also encourages employees to volunteer to help with the food drive.
Wells Fargo has been a longtime partner of the Feeding America network of food banks and is committed to helping fight hunger. With this donation, each Wells Fargo team member will get 16 hours of paid community service each year. With the gifts, they will be able to feed more families this holiday season. It’s the best way to give to your community and help those in need.
