The Food Bank of the Southern Tier received a $3,000 donation today from Watkins Glen International. Michael Printup, President of WGI, pledged the donation for the Food Bank’s BackPack Program during Giving is Gorges, the Tompkins County Annual Day of Giving, on June 1.
“We at Watkins Glen International are proud to be a part of this community and we want to continually support all that the Food Bank does here in the Southern Tier,” Printup said.
Natasha R. Thompson, President & CEO of the Food Bank, said WGI’s commitment to the Food Bank has been growing in recent years.
“Watkins Glen International is a great example of how community relationships can grow and deepen. WGI started by donating money to the BackPack Program. Then they became the very first donor to our annual Turkey Drive last year. In February, the staff came to volunteer at our production facility. This kind of community support is what makes our work possible,” Thompson said.
