WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Philabundance, the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley, is the recipient of a $15,000 donation from WSFS Bank. WSFS Associates and volunteers presented the donation to Philabundance at Preston & Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger 2018 that is taking place at Xfinity Live in South Philadelphia. WSFS Bank is a sponsor of the 2018 Camp Out and a loyal, long-time community advocate in the fight against hunger. WSFS volunteers have also collected food donations at the week-long Camp Out, which is the largest single-location food drive in the country.
“As the largest and longest-standing community bank in the Greater Delaware Valley, we take seriously the responsibility to support and serve our local communities, especially those individuals who face one of the most wrenching symptoms of poverty: that is hunger,” said Shari Kruzinski, Senior Vice President and Director of Retail Business Initiatives for WSFS Bank. “Like my fellow WSFS Associates, we recognize that individuals and families sometimes find themselves in need of assistance, so it is critical for our Bank to continue to be a local active participant in the fight against hunger.”
For 15 years, WSFS Associates have collected and donated nonperishable foods in annual fall drives at WSFS Bank locations across Delaware and Pennsylvania. Earlier in 2018, WSFS Bank celebrated a milestone of one million meals served from those collections to feed hungry children, adults and families in the communities the Bank serves.
WSFS Bank Customers and residents of the Delaware Valley are encouraged to take their nonperishable food donations to the Camp Out, which ends Friday, November 30. WSFS Bank’s own fall food drive with Cityteam in Pennsylvania and the Sunday Breakfast Mission in Delaware will run through the end of the year and donations can be made at any WSFS Bank location.
