FORT SMITH (June 16, 2020) — The River Valley Regional Food Bank, in a partnership with Feeding America and Rath Auto Resources in Fort Smith, began a hand sanitizer distribution program this week.
The program began Monday with the food bank distributing 1.75 liter bottles to local community partners. This program will continue on Tuesday with the food bank providing sanitizer to clients during the USDA commodities distribution program. The food bank will continue the hand sanitizer distribution program in a similar fashion to clients and community partners across the River Valley while supplies last.
The food bank recently received over 19,000 bottles of hand sanitizer from Feeding America. The project was underwritten by Rath Auto Resources in Fort Smith.
We thank Feeding America and Rath Auto Resources for the opportunity to give back to those we serve and are thankful to our community partners for the work they do for families in our area.
