RCB Bank officers and employees have been busy collecting jars of peanut butter! They recently donated more than 200 pounds of peanut butter to the Winfield Food Pantry and Joseph’s Storehouse, along with a check for $2,000.
RCB Bank’s core values are relationships, community and boldness and during the months of October and November, employees were challenged to collect 100 pounds of peanut for the Food Pantry. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the U.S., 1 in 9 people worldwide live with chronic hunger. In the U.S. alone, 1 in 7 people do not have enough to eat. RCB Bank Market President Gregg Conklin wasn’t surprised when employees crushed the goal.
“RCB Bank employees care deeply about the communities they live in,” Conklin said. “When it comes to supporting others, be it the Winfield Pantry, Joseph’s Storehouse, CASA or local schools, RCB Bank employees are some of the most generous with their time, talents and treasures.”
Why did we donate peanut butter?
“So many of us love peanut butter for its great taste, nutrition or just for the wonderful childhood memories we get when we bite into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich,” Conklin responded. “Many do not realize that peanut butter helps make ends meet for thousands of people who use food banks in the United States, and that peanut butter is also part of life-saving treatment for malnourished children. RCB Bank is proud to support community organizations like the Food Pantry.”
