Emprise Bank employees recently participated in an eight-week weight loss challenge that made two things clear: Emprise bankers are motivated by competition and the opportunity to help those in need.
Emprise bankers from across the state donated $5 to the Kansas Food Bank to join the Pound 4 Pound Challenge, with Emprise Bank adding $1 for each pound lost. At the end of eight weeks, participants had collectively lost nearly 600 pounds.
All those pounds lost resulted in a total contribution of $1,500 to the Kansas Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids backpack program, which connects young people with vital meals during weekends and holiday breaks.
Thanks to the generosity of Cargill, Emprise Bank’s $1,500 Food 4 Kids donation will be doubled.
