BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced that it will host the eighth annual Race for the Hungry event at two supermarkets in the Green Bay area: Pick’ n Save at 1819 Main St in Green Bay and Piggly Wiggly at 2465 Lineville Rd in Howard. 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 groceries.

Four members from the community, each representing different area nonprofits, will race through the supermarket aisles to fill the pantry’s wish list. Renne Gantz-Nett a Howard-Suamico School District (HSSD) speech language pathologist and Katie VanAsten, also a HSSD speech language pathologist will represent the Autism Society of Northeaster Wisconsin. Peggy Goddard, a HSSD new teacher mentor and Diance Schmidtke a HSSD volunteer and community involvement coordinator will race for The Giving Tree. The winners will receive a $100 gift card towards the organization they raced on behalf of and the runners-up will receive a $50 card, also for their chosen organization. North Shore Bank will donate the food collected during the races to The Giving Tree of Howard-Suamico food pantry.

The branch will also accept donations of non-perishable food items for the Giving Tree throughout December.

“In the spirit of the holiday season, this annual event gives us the opportunity to help our neighbors in need,” said Kerri Collins, district manager for the bank. “We encourage everyone to get involved, whether by dashing up and down supermarket aisles or by donating non-perishable food items. Together we can help make a family’s holiday season a little brighter.”
