Foundation donates $10,000 to regional food bank
The Dominion Foundation and its representatives, Junius Williams Jr., managing director of Va./N.C. state and local affairs, and Michael Thompson, state/local affairs, presented a gift of $10,000 to the Food Bank of the Albemarle in support of their work fighting hunger and poverty in northeast North Carolina.
Executive Director Liz Reasoner accepted the check from Dominion at the Food Bank’s Elizabeth City warehouse.
“In the face of challenging economic times at all levels of our society, the generosity of the Dominion Foundation not only helps us feed the many hungry men, women and children here in northeast North Carolina,” Reasoner said. “It also stands as an example of the things we can accomplish with the help of our communities.”
The donation continues a successful partnership between the Foundation and Food Bank.
With $10,000 the Food Bank can provide approximately 50,000 pounds of food or about 38,461 meals to our clients. According to the latest reports, the Food Bank of the Albemarle serves a region in great need of food assistance.
The 2012 Map the Meal Gap study from Feeding America indicates that 61,390 people in this region face food insecurity.
