Chase employees gather 15,000 items in food drive

ELGIN – March is National Nutrition Month and local Chase employees are celebrating the best way they know how – by making food available to their neighbors in need.

As part of Chase’s seventh annual Elgin Site Food Drive, employees joined together to gather more than 15,000 food, hygiene items and paper products for their community members who need it most. This more than doubles donations gathered by Chase employees last year. The Chase “feed a family” Elgin Food Drive focused on gathering nonperishable donations that could not only feed an entire family, but also provide full meals with proper nutrition.

“As Chase marks its 40th year in Elgin, the success of this food drive is a testament to how well our employees work together to solve a problem, especially when that problem is right in our backyard,” said Nancy Stoneman, senior operations manager, Chase Card Services in Elgin.

The donated items will be distributed to Clearbrook, Elgin Centro d’Informacion, Elgin Community Crisis Center, Elgin Salvation Army, FISH Food Pantry and Rockford Salvation Army.
