South Georgia Banking Company’s Food Drive a Great Success

South Georgia Banking Company, along with area banks, supported the United Way of South Central Georgia and local food pantries by participating in the Banking Together to Drive Out Hunger campaign, a food drive held during October and November.

 

The food drive was a great success, and overall, employees and customers from all of our SGBC branches collected more than 2,820 items for the United Way.  The food was donated to the community in which it was collected for all the counties we serve: Tift County, Colquitt County, Turner County, Crisp County and Dooly County.

During the summer of 2012, Melba Brown, credit analyst at our Ashburn Branch, volunteered on behalf of SGBC in the Food For Thought program organized by Turner County Connection, which includes Communities in Schools of Turner County, Tiftarea YMCA and Turner County Board of Education. Turner County currently has 83% of its students who benefit from the free and reduced lunch program and still need to receive  meals over the summer break. The Food for Thought program is a community partnership with the goal of feeding and enhancing the education of children in Turner County. As part of her volunteering, Melba taught financial basics to the kids in an interactive, simple way. Through fun games, she explained spending, saving and how to make your money grow.
