What is Swipe Out Hunger?

Swipe Out Hunger is a Merchants Bank initiative to support local food shelves in our communities. Food shelves are nominated by our branches and receive a donation based on the number of votes cast through our Facebook page. The total possible donation will increase by 5 cents each time our customers use their Merchants Bank debit or credit cards and $100 for every checking or savings account opened during the campaign period between August 1-8, up to a maximum of $10,000.


Our goal is to:

  • Give $2,500 to the top vote-getting food shelf.
  • Give an additional $7,500 (in total) to all other nominated shelves.
  • In order to achieve both goals, we need to reach 200,000 swipes (purchases made with a Merchants Bank debit or credit card) by our customers between August 1-8.
