Eau Claire (WQOW) – Feed My People Food Bank in Eau Claire could be in for a big pay-day to help buy needed food and supplies, but first the non-profit needs your help.
Feed My People is one of 14 organizations vying for a donation from Merchants Bank. The winner of the money will be decided based on Facebook votes.
The program is called Swipe Out Hunger. Food shelves are nominated by local Merchants Bank branches. The total donation amount will be increased by 5 cents every time a Merchants Bank customer uses their Merchants Bank credit or debit card. The donation will increase $100 for every checking or savings account opened during the campaign. A maximum of $10,000 will be awarded. However, you do not need to be a Merchants Bank customer to vote.
The contest runs until Wednesday August 8.
