Salvation Army Banks on Support to Feed the Hungry

Posted: Updated:

The Salvation Army continues to provide food to individuals and families in need, and they often bank on donations from others--to help keep their food pantry stocked.

Tuesday morning, Wells Fargo volunteers dropped off a large donation.

Around five thousand items collected by Bismarck/Mandan branches in a fun competition.

It's the Wells Fargo team's second year doing this.

They brought in a little more than one thousand pounds of food this year.

Salvation Army puts out around ten thousand pounds of food in a month.

Case managers say they are serving a lot of individuals right now, many working in the oilfields, who come in and get food until they get a job or a paycheck.

So every bit helps.

"We really appreciate their donation, we equally appreciate their coming and working with us, it gives us a big boost, we save things up for them to help us with when they're here, and it also helps the community what we're doing and what we're all about." says Helen Winstryt/Salvation Army Case Manager

"We know that Bismarck is a great community and in order for us to grow and continue to thrive, we need to be able to help those less fortunate, so we feel it's really important as a bank and as a community that we step forward and volunteer." says Todd Steinwand/Wells Fargo Team.

Every year, Wells Fargo has their employees donate two work days to volunteer.
