Charter One Bank donation to Second Harvest will provide holiday meals

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Carving out hunger is Charter One Bank's annual program that raises awareness of hunger and provides holiday meals for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

On Thursday, volunteers from Charter One packed food to be loaded on trucks for delivery to local pantries.

"Charter One Bank has donated $10,000, which allowed us to purchase 1,400 chickens or 9,000 pounds of food. We're going to be able to distribute that to people in the community who have needs," said Diana Hogg, Charter One Bank.

Charter One will provide hundreds of volunteer hours, and $105,000 in grants this holiday season to food banks statewide through the Carving Out Hunger program.
