TEEG needed a truck. When our old truck, purchased for a $1 from the Connecticut Food Bank died, we were missing out on opportunities to receive needed donations from local warehouses. bankHometown offered a $5,000 match challenge and we got to work spreading the word. Within an hour we had our first donor, Longmeadow Automotive.
The outpouring of support that followed was humbling and soon we raised twice the matched amount, allowing us to purchase the perfect vehicle to suit our needs.
