RHINELANDER - Local food pantries got a thirteen thousand dollar boost from a month long challenge last December.

The Northwoods community and Peoples State Bank joined forces to help out local food pantries.

This is the fourth year the bank challenged the community to raise food and money.

Peoples State Bank asked local communities to make food and cash donations.

The bank offered to match up to 5-thousand dollars of donations at each branch according to Rhinelander Area Food Pantry General Manager Jane Motowski.

"It's worked very well for us. We've gotten over two-thousand dollars every time they've done it. The community is very generous because we usually end up getting about the biggest check that's given out."

Almost 1,700 dollars went to the Vilas Food Pantry. The rest of the money went to the Lakeland Food Pantry and the Marathon County Hunger Coalition.
