Along with our three dedicated participants, Commerce National Bank was proud to partner with Leslie’s Creperie, a local food truck which donated 15% of the day’s proceeds to the Operation Feed Campaign at MidOhio Foodbank.  CNB participates in this campaign every year, allowing employees and clients to give back to the community by making donations right in our branch. Donations are essential in order to provide hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens, and emergency shelters supplies for their shelves.  Thank you to Paul Humphreys, owner of Leslie’s Creperie for helping kick off CNB’s campaign to help needy families.

On April 25th, Jessica Gliha and Jessie Soto of the CNB Marketing Department presented Angie Leonard, Operation Feed Campaign Coordinator, with two checks totaling more than $150.  With every dollar providing three meals, CNB’s donation provided over 450 meals to needy families in Central Ohio.  Thanks go out to everyone who donated, participated, and volunteered at this event.
