Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee is accepting monetary donations during its “Double Your Donation” Day campaign and is matching up to 300-thousand dollars of community donations with donations from corporate donors.
For every dollar donated, three meals are supplied to the food bank for the upcoming year.
Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, Elaine Streno said every donated dollar, truly makes a difference.
“A dollar goes a long way, in purchasing food. We buy tractor-trailer loads of food, where a dollar provides three meals. We are very efficient through the community’s funding and proud of that,” Streno said.
The campaign will continue on-site and via telephone at the food bank until 7:00 p.m. and double-donations will be accepted online until midnight.
