NebraskaLand National Bank employees donated $3,543.29 to UNK Campus Kitchen on Wednesday. The check was distributed through the My Fair Share program, which lets bank employees donate to a nominated nonprofit organization.
A group of students at Campus Kitchen prepare and deliver meals to between 80 and 110 families in need each week, including a Thanksgiving meal during its TurkeyPalooza event. In Kearney, Campus Kitchen’s clients range from families with young children to homebound seniors.
Participating in the check presentation Wednesday were, left to right: Justin Schwartz, senior vice president, Kearney market president, NebraskaLand National Bank; Carol Pelster, vice president, branch operations manager, NebraskaLand National Bank; Maria Alejandra Amado, president of UNK International Student Association; Denise Sasse, retail banking manager, NebraskaLand National Bank; Jon Watts, director of business services and accounts payable; Monica Mueller, assistant director, office of multicultural affairs; and Wil Smith, director, UNK Dining Services.
