Bank making effort to eliminate hunger [UPDATED]

Published 4:16am Tuesday, May 28, 2013 Updated 6:20am Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Hunger can affect anyone, anywhere, any age. Do you know that one out of six people in the United States don’t have enough access to food? Hunger could be impacting someone you know — your friend, neighbor or co-worker.

Every day, there are people in our communities that have to choose between buying food, paying for housing and paying for medical costs.

At Bremer Bank, our vision is to build healthy communities through partnerships. So, once again this year, we are teaming up with Second Harvest Heartland and other Feeding America food banks to help end hunger in our communities.

This year, we are matching your donations from June 10-22, $2 for $1, up to $30,000. You can donate online at Bremer.com, at any Bremer Bank location or by sending a check to Second Harvest Heartland at 1140 Gervais Ave., St. Paul, MN 55109.

One hundred percent of donations collected are distributed to Second Harvest Heartland, other Feeding America food banks and local food shelves in Bremer communities.

Another easy way to make a donation is to visit youtube.com/bremerbanks during the campaign and watch the hunger video featuring senior citizen musical entertainment group “Alive and Kickin.’”

Bremer is donating a $1 for every view of the video to the campaign up to 10,000 views.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and partnership. We look forward to matching your donation and appreciate your support.
