Bank to match contributions to local food shelves

CANNON FALLS/RED WING -- In support of March being "Food Share" month, Merchants Bank will match all monetary donations made at its Red Wing and Cannon Falls locations with a corporate gift to local food shelves.

"All of us in our community have a responsibility to make sure no one in our area goes hungry," said Merchants Bank Regional President Greg Evans. "We look forward to matching the generosity of the customers in our communities for this worthy cause."

Merchants will collect the money at its locations through April 5 and then match those donations dollar-for-dollar up to $2,100. The donation will be split evenly in support of community food shelf operations in Randolph, Cannon Falls and Red Wing.

"Helping people is part of our value system at Merchants Bank. It is something that we have always done and something we will always do," Evans said.

The match continues the tradition started by First National Bank, which Merchants Bank acquired in September.
