SEVIERVILLE, TN- Jim Davis, Executive Director of Sevier County Food Ministries, recently joined SCB on local radio to announce SCFM as the January 2017 beneficiary of the Bank's employee jeans day fundraising program. Now through January 31st, participating Sevier County Bank employees will be donating cash or items to the food ministry in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays.
SCFM provides supplemental food to those with a need that goes beyond that which personal funds or other assistance provides. According to Davis, SCFM served an average of 1,800 local families per week in 2016. "Sevier County Food Ministries is blessed and extremely thankful for the support and contributions we receive from SCB and others in the community," Davis said. "WIthout our wonderful volunteers and amazing local support, there is no way we could have distributed over 84,000 bags of groceries last year." Current needs at SCFM include: large boxes of instant mashed potatoes (potato flakes) and variety packs of instant oatmeal.
If you would like to help Sevier County Bank make a difference in our community, you can make a monetary or item donation at any SCB location now through the end of the month. In addition to the current needs mentioned above, other non-perishable food donations are also needed and much appreciated.
