Race for the Hungry 2017

North Shore Bank hosted its ninth annual Race for the Hungry on Wednesday, December 27 at three supermarkets benefitting three food pantries. The Race for the Hungry is an annual community event that challenges participants in a head-to-head competition to support local food pantries and win free gift cards.
 
At El Rey Foodmart, two members from the Milwaukee Christian Center board of directors, Karen W. Higgens, Executive Director, and Jennifer Torres, raced through the supermarket aisles to fill the pantry’s wish list.
 
In Kenosha, racers from Kenosha Tremper High School football team and Turning Life Point Church competed to benefit the Shalom Center. Rick Barnes from the Shalom Center attended the event to thank the racers and transport the groceries.
 
Girl Scouts from Appleton’s Ferber Elementary School raced through the aisles of Piggly Wiggly to benefit Apple Valley food pantry. The winning team received a $100 North Shore Bank gift card and the runners-up will receive a $50 card. The troops plan to utilize the prize gift cards to help fund additional community service projects.
