Sumitomo Donates $16,500 to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia 

Chesapeake, Virginia, Tuesday November 23, 2010

The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia (FSEVA), established in 1981, works in our community to provide solutions to hunger and certain consequences of poverty by collecting and distributing food, clothing, and related products to those in crisis.  For every $1 donation FSEVA receives, they can assemble and distribute up to $6 dollars worth of groceries those throughout the Foodbank’s 3,500-square-mile service area. This area includes not only the cities of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Franklin and Virginia Beach, but also the counties of Southampton, Northampton, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Accomack.  Sumitomo is pleased to once again support the Foodbank’s efforts to help our neighbors.                  

On Friday November 19, 2010 with special guest Alan P. Krasnoff, Mayor of Chesapeake in attendance, Ron Smith, Sumitomo CEO/President, and Jim Solomon, Sumitomo CFO, presented Karen Joyner, FSEVA CFO with a check in the amount of $16,500.  “Thank you!” said Karen Joyner. “Your generosity will provide more than 12,000 meals right here in our area.”                   

Sumitomo matches 50% of employees’ donations to FSEVA. This year, employees donated $10,910 and Sumitomo added $5,590 to this contribution, for a total of $16,500 (Last year, Sumitomo presented a check for $12,500).
