American Bank Center gifts $100,000 to Great Plains Food Bank
American Bank Center recently presented the Great Plains Food Bank with a gift for $100,000 to benefit the organization's efforts to open a regional service center in Bismarck-Mandan.

Thanks to the generous gift, the Great Plains Food Bank hopes to move into its new facility by the summer of 2020, which will significantly enhance its ability to serve clients in the central and western parts of North Dakota.

American Bank Center also invites its customers and the public to join in the fight to end hunger by making a gift to the Great Plains Food Bank online at greatplainsfoodbank.org/americanbankcenter.html.

THANK YOU for your gifts this #GivingTuesday
Thanks to YOUR incredible support, we were able to raise enough this #GivingTuesday to supply more than 56,000 meals to help feed hungry children, seniors and families across North Dakota and western Minnesota.

Because of YOUR generosity, fewer children will be going to bed hungry, fewer seniors will make the difficult choice between paying for food or medicine and fewer parents will be skipping meals just so their children can eat.
