[Raleigh, NC] AgCarolina Farm Credit is proud to announce a $2,000 donation to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
Employees have the option to participate in “A Cause a Quarter” each quarter. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the association. Participants are able to wear jeans each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the second quarter of 2019 was the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Specifically, the donation will be made to the Nourishing Children Initiative, one of the Food Bank’s child nutrition programs. With employee and Association contributions, the total donation amount is $2,000, which equates to 20,000 meals.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit is committed to being a good steward of the resources in our communities,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter has been a way for our team to all get behind a common cause and work together to make a greater impact. We are proud to partner with the Food Bank. We are grateful to have them as an active part of our communities fighting hunger across eastern and central North Carolina.”
