U.S. Bank Branches Official Dropoff Sites for Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign

MINNEAPOLIS, Mar 3, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- People who want to help feed the hungry in Minnesota need look no further than their local U.S. Bank branch.

U.S. Bank branches across the state will be community collection sites for cash and food donations for local food shelves as part of the 2003 Minnesota FoodShare Campaign. The campaign runs from March 1 through March 31.

"We're excited about our 2003 Minnesota FoodShare Campaign," said Sue Kainz, campaign coordinator for the March Minnesota FoodShare campaign. "With the economy being in the state that it is, food shelf use has increased dramatically and we hope people will dropoff donations at their local U.S. Bank branch."

"U.S. Bank is proud to assist our communities by supporting Minnesota FoodShare," said Richard Davis, vice chairman of U.S. Bancorp. "We all need to do our part to combat hunger. Donations made at local U.S. Bank branches will remain in the community to support the food shelves in that area."

Minnesota FoodShare, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, directs the March Campaign, the largest food and cash drive in the state. This campaign in 2003 will help restock more than 260 food shelves across Minnesota. Half of all the groceries distributed at Minnesota's food shelves each year come from the March Campaign.
