The 2016 Liberty Bank/Rotary Club Thanksgiving Drive is bringing on the turkey in a big way! Our 40 Rotary Club partners and 55 branches raised a total of over $225,400, which was matched with more than $53,300 from the Liberty Bank Foundation–for a grand total of (drumroll, please!): $281,808.
Let’s put that into context. An annual survey by the American Farm Bureau says the average cost of a Thanksgiving meal nationwide is $4.99. That means that 56,475 of our neighbors will be able to sit down to a proper Thanksgiving feast this Thursday. And over the 13 years we’ve been operating the drive, we’ve raised almost $1.7 million for Thanksgiving food.
Here at the foundation, we have a lot to be grateful for this holiday–especially the hard work and generosity of our Rotary partners, our fellow Liberty Bankers, and our customers and neighbors throughout our service area. Your commitment and support inspire us every day. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
