Bremer raises over $100K to fight hunger
During the eighth annual Bremer Bank Hunger Campaign, the $2-for-$1 donation match up to $30,000, was met and exceeded.
About $103,350 was raised during the two-week campaign for local Feeding America food banks and local food shelves.
That includes an additional $4,886 donated by Bremer as a result of a $1 donation per view of its hunger awareness video featuring senior performance group Alive & Kickin.
The Bremer Hunger Campaign all-time donation totals have now surpassed $1 million raised to end hunger.
During the campaign, Bremer employees raised money by sponsoring bake sales, as well as hosting cook-outs and food drives. They also donated their time and energy to stock local food shelves and prepare food packages in various communities.
“Hunger continues to be an important issue that Bremer employees and communities clearly connect with,” said Ron Mueller, market manager of Bremer Bank Detroit Lakes.
“It definitely impacts all of us and I’m so proud that in the eight years Bremer has run this hunger campaign, we have reached the $1 million mark in total donations. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s campaign and in our previous campaigns.”
A separate 1-to-1 food drive match continues through this month at the Becker County Food Pantry.
