In the last few months, a local bank and SRS contractor donated $40,000 to feed the hungry in the Augusta area.
$30,000 from Savannah River Nuclear Solutions will provide 60,000 meals for children, seniors and families in need.
Queensborough National Bank & Trust, which has multiple branches throughout the CSRA, presented a $10,000 check to Golden Harvest Food Bank.
The bank has also partnered with the nonprofit for more than 10 years by distributing over 100,000 pounds of food to needy families.
The bank hosts Golden Harvest Mobile Markets in several local counties, including Richmond, Columbia, Burke, and McDuffie. These markets distribute a variety of food items, such as meat and fresh produce, as well as toilet paper and diapers. In 2021, Queensborough hosted nine Mobile Markets and served more than 1,900 local families. “We are blessed to partner with Golden Harvest and to support all the ways they bring honor to others through their resolute commitment to compassion and care,” says Dagan Sharpe, the bank’s Senior Vice President and Regional Banking Manager.
