Edward Jones branches collect for Blue Ridge Area Food Bank

Edward Jones branches around the region announced in an email that they collected nonperishable food from clients to donate to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

Edward Jones’ Greg Demski called the effort a chance to improve the lives of our clients and colleagues to better our communities and society.

Family struggles and inflation have recently caused an even greater demand on food banks to provide for those in need.

On Friday September 2 Edward Jones members from Warren, Frederick, Clarke and Shenandoah Counties were able to deliver 1,110 pounds of food to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

Bret Hrbek of Front Royal Edward Jones Office says the agency looks forward to continuing to participate in efforts to serve the communities they serve.
