Filling Hearts and Stomachs: Big Thanks to ANB Bank for filling weekend bags for JC-FFF!

This past week, the dedicated team from ANB Bank of Buffalo helped fill weekend bags for Johnson County Friends Feeding Friends.

For those unfamiliar with Friends Feeding Friends, we’re a local organization dedicated to fighting hunger and food insecurity in Johnson County. Every week, we provide shelf stable food to children facing hardships. Weekends can be a particularly daunting time for those struggling to make ends meet. That’s where the weekend bags come in – a lifeline of sustenance and comfort to bridge the gap until the next distribution.

But filling these bags takes time, effort, and resources. And that’s where ANB Bank came in.  Instead of clocking out at the end of the workday, ANB employees – from tellers to executives – rolled up their sleeves and dedicated their personal time to assembling the bags. Seeing those familiar faces, usually behind the counter or in suits, transformed into a team of compassionate helpers, truly warmed our hearts.

This generous act of service wasn’t just about filling bags – it was about filling lives with hope. Knowing that there are people in our community who care, who are willing to give up their own time to ensure no one goes hungry, is immensely powerful. It speaks volumes about the character of ANB Bank and their commitment to our community.

Thanks to their contribution, over 130 households in Johnson County will have nutritious meals and treats to tide them over the weekend. These weekend bags aren’t just sustenance – they’re a tangible reminder that they’re not alone, that there are people who care, and that there’s hope for a brighter future.

So, from the bottom of our hearts at Friends Feeding Friends, and from all the families you’ve helped, a deep and heartfelt thank you to ANB Bank. You’ve not only filled weekend bags, you’ve filled hearts with gratitude and strengthened the fabric of our community. Your dedication and generosity are truly inspirational!

And to everyone reading this, we invite you to join us in spreading hope and fighting hunger. Volunteer your time, donate, or simply share this message to raise awareness. Together, we can ensure that no one in Johnson County ever goes hungry.
