Ameris Bank announces the sixth annual Helping Fight Hunger Food Drive Initiative during the month of October.
Seven Ameris Bank branches, including the Richmond Hill branch, will collect nonperishable food items to donate to a local food bank. At the end of the month, Ameris Bancorp will also contribute a monetary donation toward each local food bank that is receiving contributions during the food drive.
“Ameris Bank is a community partner, and we recognize that there are many within our community who fight hunger on a daily basis,” said Greater Savannah Market President Austen Carroll. “We trust our customers and employees will rally behind our sixth annual food drive, making a difference in the lives of many families throughout the Coastal Empire.”
Customers and residents are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items through Oct. 31. Collection boxes will be located inside each Ameris Bank branch. The Richmond Hill branch is at 10425 Ford Ave.
This year’s food drive will touch many nonprofit organizations that specifically work to help end hunger throughout the region, including America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia, Loaves and Fishes, Backpacks for Kids, Manna House, First Calvary Missionary Baptist Church and St. Boniface Catholic Church.
