BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced that the ninth annual Race for the Hungry event, held at El Rey Foodmart, 1320 W. Burnham St, raised more than $500 for the Milwaukee Christian Center food pantry. Race for the Hungry is an annual community event that challenges participants in a head-to-head competition to support local food pantries and win free groceries.

Two members from the Milwaukee Christian Center board of directors, Karen W. Higgens, Executive Director, and Jennifer Torres, raced through the supermarket aisles to fill the pantry’s wish list. The winner received a $100 grocery gift card and the runner-up received a $50 card. North Shore Bank donated the food collected during the race to the pantry.

“In the spirit of the holiday season, this annual event gives us the opportunity to help our neighbors in need,” said Alfredo Martin, area branch manager for the bank. “We encourage everyone to get involved, whether by dashing up and down supermarket aisles or by donating non-perishable food items. Together we can help make a family’s holiday season a little brighter.”

The race between the two selected finalists was held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 27.  All items collected during the race will feed local families in need.
