On Thursday members of Century National Bank presented a check to a local organization that strives to feed our needy.
For the 27th year, Century National Bank has teamed up with the Operation Feed Campaign to raise money to feed the hungry in Muskingum County . The bank used a variety of tactics to raise funds this year.
" This year we raised over $12,000 and had our first market sweep at Riesbeck’s that went very well to raise some dollars as well," said Pat Nash, President of Century National Bank.
The company also held cookouts, flower sales and more to reach their goal. The donated money will stay here locally and be used to produce more than a million meals annually.
"We say four meals for every dollar. You take 12,000 times four and that’s a lot of meals, and you take in account how much we served last year over a million meals were served by the 15 food pantries and four hot food programs."
Century National Bank also donated food items to Operation Feed and would like to thank the Zanesville Fire Department for picking up the food and taking it to local pantries.
