SEMO Food Bank wins $100K grant

Tri-State Advertising & Marketing Professionals awarded the Southeast Missouri Food Bank a $100,000 grant. The Advertising for a Cause grant was established to provide advertising assistance, production and media placement for regional public service organizations. 

In a press statement, Karen Green, director of the Southeast Missouri Food Bank, says the award could not have come at a better time. The receding flood waters are leaving behind many people displaced from their homes and, those who are able to return, are finding damaged or lost food stores.

Ten regional media companies have donated their production and placement services to fund the grant. The media partners will develop and implement a multi-media public service campaign for the Southeast Missouri Food Bank covering a five-state service area.
