HNB to Donate a Quarter Ton of Peanut Butter & Jelly to Local Food Banks
Honesdale, PA – On May 28, World Hunger Day, The Honesdale National Bank (HNB) and their new friend, Blu, concluded their “Spread Smiles with Sharing” campaign to drive donations of peanut butter and jelly to support the fight against hunger.
HNB’s eleven offices collected a total of 498 pounds of peanut butter and jelly, which will be donated to food pantries local to each office.
HNB’s community call-to-action was further encouraged by the Bank’s commitment to a matching monetary donation to the local food pantries for each pound of peanut butter and jelly collected. Local food pantries will receive a combined monetary donation of $498 from The Honesdale National Bank.
The “Spread Smiles with Sharing” campaign stemmed from HNB’s new friend, Blu, and his eagerness to teach HNB customers and the local area about money management through saving, spending, and sharing. The Bank’s campaign aimed to teach kids not only about saving money, but also about sharing money through community giving.
“HNB believes that some of the best investments we can make are in the communities we serve,” said HNB President and CEO David Raven. “Therefore, we’re committed to engaging younger generations about money management skills and how to use those practices to also help your local community.”
It's time to open up and start listening to our community! HNB and Blu are always looking for ways to make a difference. Let’s see how many mascots are up for the #OpenYourEarsChallenge.
- Take a video of your mascot opening an ear of corn as fast as they can and time them.
- Post the video on your social media platforms and tag 3 other mascots – they can be local or national!
- Tag The Honesdale National Bank and Use the hashtag #openyourearschallenge
HNB will donate $50 to the CEO Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank up to $1000 for every mascot that participates. The mascot with the fastest time will receive a gift of $100 to donate to an organization of their choice.
