Race for the Hungry Brings in Food for Charities in Eighth Year

North Shore Bank hosted our eighth annual Race for the Hungry events at grocery stores within our communities on December 27. These races engage participants in a head-to-head competition to support local food pantries and win free groceries.
 
Races took place at Pick ’n Save in Green Bay, Piggly Wiggly in Howard, Festival Foods in Kenosha, and El Rey Foodmart in Milwaukee. Total value of the food gathered in each race breaks down as follows:
 
  • Pick ’n Save — $352.33 
  • Piggly Wiggly — $514.88 
  • Festival Foods — $465.22 
  • El Rey Foodmart — $537.22  
 
Food collected and donations from the Green Bay and Howard events went to the Trinity Lutheran Church pantry and the Giving Tree. In Kenosha, collections and donations went to the Shalom Center, and the El Rey collections and donations went to the Milwaukee Christian Center.
 
The winning racers won $100 grocery gift cards, while runners-up won $50 gift cards. Bank employees and participants donated their gift cards and made other donations to other groups, as well, including Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay, the Bay Area Humane Society, and the Autism Society of Northeastern Wisconsin. We appreciate the caring spirit of all who donated in support of these wonderful organizations.  View event pictures.
