CNB Collects More Than 10,000 Meals for Mid-Ohio Food Bank

July 12, 2012

COLUMBUS, Ohio - In many cultures sharing food is a supreme act of generosity. At Commerce National Bank it is an annual event. For the past three years, CNB has made collecting meals for Operation Feed a departmental competition.

Coordinated by Zo Sellers and inspired by their team leaders, groups were challenged to see which group could collect the most meals for Operation Feed. This competition sparked some innovative ideas. Our first floor group, “Hunger Heroes”, created a rolling non-alcoholic Happy Hour Cart; “FoodBanker$” held a silent dessert auction; and “Healthcare Champions” encouraged clients to bring food items to a get-together. These and many other collection opportunities, along with a weekly raffle, raised a total of 10,463 meals for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank! The 2012 total surpasses last year’s record-breaking campaign by more than 5,000 meals.

Our staff is the heart of Commerce National Bank, and their enthusiasm and creative spirit drive the success of this commitment to our community. We are proud of the company we keep.
