FBT Bank & Mortgage (FBT), 7199 Sheridan Road, will host its second annual Give ‘N’ Get Outdoors event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15.
For every five food items donated, people can enter a drawing to win a L’Aigle Deer Blind valued at $850. The effort will benefit the White Hall Community Food Pantry, according to a news release.
The event will also include free sandwiches provided by Scotty Ray’s BBQ, a bounce house for children and music. White Hall Motorsports and Spencer’s Marine will showcase boats and utility vehicles.
“FBT is once again kicking off the hunting season in a big fashion, while also recognizing that the fall and winter months present a special burden on food pantries to help our neighbors not go hungry,” said Craig Attwood, FBT executive vice president and director of banking for Jefferson County. “We’re celebrating the long-standing tradition of hunting while helping stock pantries as the winter holidays approach.”
In 2017, White Hall residents donated six truckloads of non-perishable food items. FBT is accepting food donations at its banking center on Sheridan Road now through Sept. 15, and anyone who drops off donations can enter to win the deer stand, according to the release.
Entries to win the deer stand increase for every five items donated. While any donation is welcome, the pantry is asking for canned meats, canned soup, canned veggies, jelly, mac and cheese, oil, pancake mix, peanut butter, sugar and syrup.
