Fulton Bank Donates $20,000 to “Stock The Freezer” Initiative
January 20, 2021 - PHILADELPHIA - Fulton Bank N.A., a division of Fulton Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: FULT), today announced a donation of $20,000 to The Church of Christian Compassion’s “Stock the Freezer” initiative.
The initiative provides healthy and nutritious food to West Philadelphia families who are experiencing hardships due to the current pandemic. The Church’s Holistic Health Program is committed to improving the health of children, seniors and their families.
With Fulton’s support, the Church will purchase and secure food gift cards from local grocery stores and existing grocery store partners, while working to expand and develop new relationships with food stores to ensure the sustainability and longevity of the program.
“Fulton is proud to be a part of The Church of Christian Compassion’s outreach program to benefit families in need – particularly this year when hardships have reached a critical level,” said Lou Lombardi, regional commercial executive for Fulton Bank. “We are 100% committed to supporting the neighborhoods we serve and hope that other local companies will join us in helping the Church reach this year’s $100,000 fundraising goal.”
“We’re very grateful for Fulton’s generosity toward our ‘Stock the Freezer’ program,” said Church Pastor W. Lonnie Herndon. “With their support, and the support of others in the local business community, we hope to help more than 500 families well beyond this holiday season.”
