Wilson Bank & Trust recently concluded its most successful penny drive to date to help
hungry neighbors, exceeding $18,000 in money raised and donated for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
The contributions, which equate to more than 72,000 Second Harvest meals, were gathered during a three- month campaign as part of Ms. Cheap’s penny drive. The bank’s efforts included customer giving at all WBT branches; change collected by employees and customers on their own; and a pair of matching donations by the bank and CEO Randall Clemons. When combined with a matching campaign by Nissan during December, the
amount given came to more than $25,000.
On the whole, the Ms. Cheap Penny Drive for Second Harvest raised more than $100,000 this year to help feed hungry men, women and children in Middle Tennessee, a new record. Wilson Bank & Trust has partnered with Ms. Cheap on the penny drive since 2012. Throughout WB&T’s service area, Second Harvest works with local partner agencies to provide food for the hungry.
