Semcac has the opportunity to receive money from Merchants Bank’s Swipe Out Hunger campaign, which will run August 1-8. Merchants Bank will donate a nickel to Swipe Out Hunger every time a Merchants Bank credit card or debit card is used between those dates, up to a total of $10,000.
Supporters of the Semcac Food Shelf can vote once a day at the Merchants Bank Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/MerchantsBank. At the end of the giveaway, the food shelf with the most votes will receive the top donation prize of $2,500, second place will receive $1,500 and third place will receive $1,000. All remaining participating food shelves will receive an even split of the remaining money donated to Swipe Out Hunger.
This is Merchants Bank’s fifth Swipe Out Hunger Facebook giveaway. In 2016, 13 food shelves across the Merchants Bank service area benefitted by receiving a total of $10,000. Hastings Family Service received the most votes with 56% of the 5,841 total votes and received the largest donation with $5,000. Merchants Bank is a member FDIC.
