American Bank Center donates $100,000 to Great Plains Food Bank
BISMARCK – American Bank Center has donated $100,000 to the Great Plains Food Bank Feed the Future campaign. The organizations announced the donation together on Tuesday.
The donation will benefit the Great Plains Food Bank’s efforts to open a regional service center in Bismarck, which will significantly enhance the organizations’ abilities to serve hungry children, seniors and families located in central and western North Dakota.
“We greatly value what the Great Plains Food Bank does, not only for the communities that we serve but the many communities across North Dakota and western Minnesota. We knew immediately this donation was a perfect fit with our organization’s aspiration of contributing to the financial stability and growth of every community to which we belong. We invite others to join us in the fight to end hunger by sending additional donations to the Great Plains Food Bank Feed the Future campaign,” American Bank Center Regional President Kevin Dykema said.
The only food bank in the state of North Dakota, the opening of a regional service center in Bismarck-Mandan will improve the Great Plains Food Bank’s capacity to serve the central and western half of North Dakota, which includes the majority of American Bank Center’s service area.
The Great Plains Food Bank serves the entire state of North Dakota along with Clay County, Minn. The Feed the Future campaign has an overall goal to provide an additional 10 million meals to those in need by 2021. The regional service center is scheduled to be open by the summer of 2020.
