First Volunteer Bank is holding a Food Drive for the Chattanooga Area Food Bank as part of the Bank’s September promotion, Tailgate-a-Palooza.
The food drive will run the month of September and be celebrated with the Bank’s Tailgate Day on Sept. 20 when all of the branches hold tailgate parties. All five of the Chattanooga branches plan to fill the bed of pickup trucks at each location with food for the Food Bank. Food can be dropped off at offices on Broad Street, Hixson Pike, Highway 58, Gunbarrel Road and Shallowford Road during normal banking hours.
“We are excited to be working in partnership with the Chattanooga Area Food Bank in helping them feed 20,000 people weekly”, stated First Volunteer President and CEO Patti Steele. “They do wonderful work in our community and we are hopeful that our contribution will help fulfill some of the need."
