Check City has announced the results of its successful partnership with Three Square Food Bank to collect non-perishable food, water and hygiene products and cash donations for the second annual Check City Checks Hunger food drive.
The food drive collected more than 3,100 pounds of food, water, and hygiene products and raised $100,000 in monetary donations to benefit Three Square, which will use the funds to provide approximately 300,000 meals for struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger in Southern Nevada communities.
For this year's fundraising campaign, Check City initially committed to match every customer donation dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000.
Upon the campaign's conclusion in April, the company was so inspired by the generosity of its customers, who collectively contributed $24,700, that it matched all donations to provide a $50,000 check to Three Square.
Three Square corporate partners Barrick Gold Corporation and NV Energy Foundation generously agreed to match the monetary donations from Check City¹s campaign, which doubled the total to $100,000.
