On Monday, October 5, 2015, the Mariner Finance Newport News branch dropped off a $1,500 donation to the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank. Dawn Bass-Campbell not only nominated the food bank to receive the donation, but was able to attend dropping off the check. She states, “I think I speak for everyone when I say, the tour really opened our eyes to the need in the community, and without the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank, the volunteers, and all the community outreach, a lot of people would be without.” As Dawn stated, the group was able to take a tour of facility, which has programs not only to feed children in need, but to teach them how to eat healthy and cook nutritional meals.
