RBC Bank Tornado Relief Food Drive Caravan To Cross Alabama To Help Feed Hungry Families

 

Multi-city food drive gathers Alabama Food Donations June 6-8

 

WHAT:

RBC Bank branches across Alabama have been collection sites for nonperishable food items donated by bank clients, employees and neighbors to benefit Alabamans devastated by the April tornadoes. Bank executives are caravanning across the state this week to collect the donated items and deliver them to area food banks.

In addition, RBC Bank has purchased nearly $20,000-worth of kitchen supplies – more than 300 boxes – from Wal-Mart to be delivered during the cross-state caravan. The supplies are kitchen items identified by FEMA as those most urgently needed for people moving into the FEMA trailers.
