For just $5, you can buy a bag full of groceries for a hungry family in the Ohio Valley.
During the whole month of November, Wesbanco is teaming up with Riesbeck’s in their 8th year of the Neighbors Helping Neighbors program. Each year, the program feeds hundreds of families who are struggling to make ends meet.
Store Operator Justin Boynes said helping out is as simple as coming to Riesbeck’s to do your own groceries.
“It’s cost effective, it’s something easy, and most people enjoy just having $5 spent. They feel like they can donate more that way. And you can also buy, if you want to do more, you can buy more than one bag as well. As many bags as you like, one bag is fine, any kind of donation is very welcome,” said Justin Boynes, store operator, Riesbeck’s in Elm Grove.
Riesbeck’s said the grocery bags are donated to Catholic Charities and various churches for distribution. You can purchase a grocery bag at participating Riesbeck’s until November 30th.
