Swipe Out Hunger

Merchants Bank's "Swipe Out Hunger" Facebook giveaway has concluded with a donation of $224 to Winona Volunteer Services. 

The bank donated 5 cents each time a Merchants Bank credit card or debit card was used between November 28 and December 7, for a total of $10,000 to be split among twelve food shelves. 

The total donation amount was determined by the percentage of votes cast for each food shelf on Merchants Bank's Facebook page and more than 5,800 votes were cast in this year's giveaway. 

In this area, SEMCAC of Caledonia, Lanesboro, Rushford and Spring Grove received $442 and La Crescent Food Share received $372.

During last year's "Swipe Out Hunger" giveaway The Hunger Task Force received the top donation of $5,000 and more than 8,100 total votes were cast.
