CRESTVIEW HILLS, KENTUCKY – February 15, 2011 – The Bank of Kentucky’s President & CEO, Bob Zapp, will present a check donation of $5,000 to benefit the Freestore Foodbank’s Power Pack program for Children in Northern Kentucky. The presentation will take place at 1:30 pm at John G. Carlisle Elementary School in Covington, KY. Freestore Foodbank representative John Young, President and CEO and Larry Williams, CFO for BRANDICORP, LLC, Board Member, will attend the presentation.
The Power Pack Program reaches more than 30,000 children in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky who would otherwise go hungry over the weekend because there are no school meals. The program gives the children some kid-friendly foods until school resumes on Monday morning. The Freestore Foodbank, with partners like The Bank of Kentucky, provides Power Packs, filled with easily prepared, nutritionally balanced foods.
“The Bank of Kentucky has been very involved in the community for 20 years,” said Bob Zapp, President & CEO of The Bank of Kentucky. “Our employees, Directors, and leadership team takes pride in giving their time and effort to numerous organizations in the area that positively impact their community. Helping an amazing organization in the Freestore Foodbank and Adopt-A-Class is merely another opportunity for our company to get involved in the lives of children through its Power Pack program.”
“We are always happy when businesses in the communities we serve ask to partner with us,” said John Young, President and CEO of the Freestore Foodbank. “The Bank of Kentucky is generously working with us and our Power Pack program to make sure children in need in Northern Kentucky have something to eat on the weekends, ensuring they are ready to learn when they come back to school on Monday.”
