Generations Bank announces ‘Purpose with a Purpose’ to support local food pantries

Generations Bank announced that on Friday, August 21st from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. they will be donating $1.50 for every purchase made at a participating Seneca Falls restaurant. The new fundraising event will be called “Purpose with a Purpose” and will benefit four local food pantries.

In celebration of Generations’ 150th Anniversary, the Bank will be donating $1.50, a nod to their 150th Anniversary, to a local food pantry for every purchase made at a participating small business on Friday, August 21st from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition, Generations will kick-off the campaign by contributing a monetary donation to each of the four food pantries.

Traditionally, Generations hosts Taste & Tunes to raise money for four Seneca County food pantries. “This year, we all had to make some sacrifices and difficult decisions,” noted Menzo Case, President & CEO of Generations Bank. “For us, we had to cancel our annual Taste & Tunes event which benefits four local food pantries in Seneca County. However, these food pantries need our help now more than ever, so we knew we needed an alternative way to raise money and support our small businesses while doing so.”

To qualify, customers must spend a minimum of $5 per person at one of the participating restaurants. Donation jars will be placed at all participating restaurants so patrons can make additional donations.

The fundraiser event will benefit the Seneca Falls Backpack Program, Seneca County House of Concern, Community Action Programs (CAP) in Waterloo, and Trevor’s Gift of Waterloo.

Participating restaurants include: Café 19, Dewey’s 3rd Ward Tavern, Downtown Deli, El Bajio Mexican Restaurant, Fall Street Brewing Co., and Parker’s Grille & Tap House. Also, participating will be Martin’s Smokehouse BBQ Food Truck which will be parked at Generations Bank Headquarters on 20 E Bayard Street in Seneca Falls.

Generations encourages everyone in the community to go out and not only support our local businesses, but to help raise funds to feed the hungry in Seneca County!
