Bank hosts charity benefit yard sale

Colonial Bank’s Homewood office recently hosted a yard sale to benefit the United Way Community Food Bank and the Foundry Rescue Mission and Recovery Center.

All proceeds from the yard sale were earmarked for the food bank while unsold items were donated to the center.

“Our associates truly gave from their hearts.” said Becky Knowles, a senior vice president for Colonial Bank.

The United Way Community Food Bank serves people in need by providing food and household items with distribution through local service agencies. In the past 21 years, the number of counties served by the food bank has increased from three to 13. For more information, please visit feedingal.org/about.
