FARGO, N.D. – With locations throughout North Dakota and Minnesota, Choice Bank is making a commitment to the fight to end hunger in multiple ways throughout its coverage area by making a $20,000 gift to the Great Plains Food Bank along with spending time giving back by volunteering.
The generous financial gift is enough to provide 60,000 meals for hungry children, seniors and families across North Dakota and western Minnesota. Choice Bank employees will also spend time volunteering at multiple locations throughout North Dakota Thursday. Employees will be packing meals inside the Great Plains Food Bank Fargo repack center along with helping at stops of its Mobile Food Pantry in Langdon and Walhalla.
