U.S. Bank Branches Official Collection Sites for Minnesota Foodshare March Campaign

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 21, 2008--Minnesotans have an opportunity to help the hungry this March when U.S. Bank branches across the state become community collection sites for the 2008 Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. People can stop by any U.S. Bank branch in the state from March 1 to March 31 to drop off cash, food, baby or personal care donations for their local food shelf.

"The need for contributions to Minnesota food shelves is at a record high. In fact, food shelf use is 60 percent greater today than it was in 2000," said Sue Kainz, campaign coordinator for the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. "Making a donation of cash, food or personal care items is a simple act that can make a huge impact to help thousands of families in our communities."

"U.S. Bank is proud to partner with Minnesota FoodShare for the seventh year in a row to help restock Minnesota's local food shelves during the March Campaign," said Deborah Burke, director of the U.S. Bancorp Foundation. "It provides a means for all members of our community to come together and help our neighbors in need."

Minnesota FoodShare, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, directs the March Campaign, the largest food and cash drive in the state. The campaign will help restock more than 265 food shelves across Minnesota, and will help provide food for the nearly 1 million Minnesotans who live in households struggling to put food on the table. Half of all the groceries distributed at Minnesota's food shelves each year come from the March Campaign.
