CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Southeast Missouri Food Bank has received a $10,000 donation from The Bank of Missouri through the Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credit program.
"The donation from The Bank of Missouri will support the purchase and renovation of a new Southeast Missouri Foodbank distribution center, nearly tripling our size," said Karen Green, executive director of Southeast Missouri Food Bank. "The support of The Bank of Missouri and other community members who utilize the tax credits are critical in providing a facility that will increase our capacity to bring hunger relief programs and services to the 64,000 individuals facing hunger in Southeast Missouri."
Donors eligible to take part in the NAP credit program include corporations, insurance companies, banks, partnerships, limited liability companies, farm owners and people with rental property or royalty income. Donors receive a Missouri income tax reduction of 50 percent of the value of their donation and other tax benefits may apply based on actual tax liability of the donor.
