Capitol Federal® Donates $10,000 to Harvesters

Capitol Federal® Donates $10,000 to Harvesters

December 14, 2017

To help people in need this holiday season, Capitol Federal® partnered with Harvesters and held a social media campaign called “React To End Holiday Hunger”. For every reaction CapFed® received on its React To End Holiday Hunger Facebook posts, the Bank donated money to Harvesters - $1 for each like, $2 for each comment and $3 for each share of the post. With a goal of raising $10,000, the True Blue® community came together to reach the goal and help support the hungry this holiday season. The money will be split evenly between Harvesters of Kansas and Harvesters of Missouri.

"We are very grateful for our community partners, like Capitol Federal," said Jannett Wiens, Corporate Engagement Manager of Harvesters - The Community Food Network. "Their donation of $10,000 from this campaign will allow us to provide 30,000 meals to the one-in-seven food insecure individuals in our service area."

Capitol Federal is pleased to say thank you to everyone who liked, commented and shared our Facebook posts. Giving back to the community is part of the CapFed corporate philosophy, and the Bank is thrilled to help Harvesters fulfill their mission of feeding hungry people today and working to end hunger tomorrow.

In total, the React To End Holiday Hunger Facebook posts reached more than 120,000 people through the thousands of likes, comments and shares. Congratulations to all who helped make React To End Holiday Hunger a success.
