SEVIERVILLE, TN- Now through December 31st, Sevier County Bank employees will be donating cash or items to the Sevier County Food Ministries 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 Executive Director Jim Davis, SCFM serves close to an average of 1,800 local families per week. "Without our wonderful volunteers and amazing support from SCB and other local individuals, businesses, and churches, there is no way we could have distributed around 82,000 bags of groceries so far this year."
Current needs include: large boxes of instant mashed potatoes (potato flakes), peanut butter, canned meats (such as tuna, chicken), and stuffing mix.
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.
