RACINE — The Stop Hunger at Home effort taken on by Home National Bank will continue on Wednesday with the “Sink Our Float” food drive.
People are asked to bring canned or non-perishable food to the Fourth of July parade in Racine to help sink the float.
Home National Bank employees, along with volunteers from the Meigs County Council on Aging, will be in the parade along with a wagon for the food items.
The group will also be passing out chips, balloons, flags and candy during the parade.
All donations will co to the Meigs County Council on Aging to help support the Meals on Wheels and the Summer Meal for Kids programs.
To date the Stop Hunger at Home effort has raised more than $8,000 in cash and collected approximately 5,000 non-perishable food items. Donations have been given to the Council on Aging and Cooperative Parrish.
Lori Miller, one of the organizers of the Stop Hunger at Home effort, said that she has been pleased by the continuous supporters and the other groups who have jumped in to help with the effort.
Donations are always accepted at the bank.
