On Thursday, May 14, 2015, Three Square Food Bank received a donation of $30,000 and 3,066 pounds of food from the Check City Checks Hunger food drive, which took place March 10 through April 6 (Photo credit: Cindy Gates/Three Square).
Customers and employees were encouraged to make donations of non-perishable food or funds at the 30 Check City locations in Las Vegas.
Through the event, nearly $15,000 was raised, which Check City rounded up and matched to equal a gift of $30,000, providing 90,000 meals for hungry people in Southern Nevada. Additionally, 85 Check City employees volunteered time at Three Square in support of the campaign.
Ross Martin and Joseph Herrera of Check City presented the check to Andy Schuricht, Chief Financial Officer of Three Square.
