The San Antonio Food Bank has said it enough unclaimed property to provide nearly 140,000 meals to the community. In fact, joyously enough, comptroller’s office has said more well-known Texas nourishment pantries may in fact be owed thousands of dollars.
Working with staples banks across Texas, the comptroller’s office is trying to help them find unclaimed property. This could help them fill up their nourishment supply for this holiday season.
Along with partners around the state, The Feeding Texas network of subistence banks, has been working relentlessly to meet the building need and we’re pleased to assist their efforts, said Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar. I’m imploring all fare banks to check ClaimItTexas.org to see if we’re holding of their unclaimed property. Every dollar can go a long way in helping needy Texans during these unusual times.
More than $19,000 in unclaimed property is what The San Antonio Food Bank has.
Getting unclaimed property via the state Comptroller’s office, is a bit of a Christmas miracle, said Eric Cooper, CEO and president of the San Antonio Food Bank.
“In fact, the miracle was so much, in our case, it will provide nearly 140,000 meals to those facing hunger in San Antonio this festive season.”
Unclaimed property for daily bread banks consists of utility deposits, uncashed checks, and refunds from vendors, etc.
Partnering with a contact at Feeding Texas, the Comptroller’s office is matching food banks with their unclaimed property.
