WHAG NEWS - One local bank is on its way to donating a million meals to area food banks with an online community food drive this holiday season.
Susquehanna banks are using their Facebook page to reach their million meals goal.
For every like, share or comment on the bank's stellar good deeds posts, the bank will donate five meals.
"We've seen several comments, several shares and we're just ecstatic about the number of people who are visiting and participating and encouraged by what we're doing and joining and taking part in it,” said Sharon Krantz, Susquehanna Bank Marketing Specialist.
And for customers, opening a personal checking account equals 25 meals donated.
So far, the bank has raised more than 800,000 meals during this online campaign.
"Susquehanna is certainly invested in the communities that we serve so we appreciate the opportunity to give back and anyway we can look at strengthening our community, helping our neighbors we try to step in and do so,” said Krantz.
The donated meals will go to nine area food banks and the drive runs until December 31, 2013.
