INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL TO PROVIDE 355,000 MEALS IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19

McKINNEY, TX, April 1, 2020 -- Independent Financial announced plans today to donate $100,000 in contributions to assist food banks and partner agencies across Texas and Colorado to meet the immediate needs of local communities. The program is expected to provide 355,000 meals, as well as meaningful, paid employment to those facing economic hardships resulting from business restrictions and social distancing.

Independent Financial representatives have been closely following the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, and leading a widespread response. “We understand in the last two weeks, as a result of COVID-19, local food banks have seen a dramatic increase in families accessing food, with one of our partners reporting a 37% increase in demand,” explains Kelli Diserens, Director of Community Investment at Independent Financial.

PUTTING PEOPLE TO WORK

Approximately one third of the funds will go directly to Get Shift Done – a North Texas non-profit that provides unemployed shift workers with paid opportunities, including food banks. Get Shift Done: https://www.getshiftdone.org/ in support of the NTX Food Bank: https://ntfb.org/

“Our organization was founded on the belief that we have a deep responsibility to solve problems and help build strong, healthy communities.” says James Tippit, Executive Vice President Corporate Responsibility. “Through this initial gifting, Independent Financial is able to give back in a way that meets a real and immediate need - feeding local families.”
