Umpqua Bank volunteers help River City Food Bank prepare for Thanksgiving


Volunteers from Umpqua Bank gave their time to United Way certified partner River City Food Bank on November 16th. The week leading up to Thanksgiving is a busy time for food banks and volunteers helped with preparation for the holiday including distributing hams and turkeys. Other volunteers worked to sort through donated items and served as personal shoppers, responsible for meeting each new client and taking them through the food line and picking out the appropriate number of food items for their family.River City Food Bank provides an emergency three days nutritional food supply, nutrition education and referral assistance, offering hope to people seeking self reliance.

Thank you to Umpqua Bank for stepping up to volunteer as well as the individual volunteers who made a huge difference in just a few short hours. The recipients of the food program were grateful of the volunteers time and efforts. Thank you to staff and the important every day volunteers of River City Food Bank who showed the volunteers the ropes.
