Raymond James Memphis is hosting a drive-up food and supply drive for the Mid-South Food Bank from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, May 21. Associates, clients and others are invited to drop off items at its Ridgeway location, 1100 Ridgeway Loop Road.

At the drive, the company will accept items including canned food, paper products and personal hygiene products. Donors are asked to put their donations in the trunk of their vehicles and remain there as the volunteers collect the items.

Second Presbyterian Church donated 60 masks for volunteers through its Protective Masks Project.

Raymond James employees are also holding an internal fundraising campaign through May 29 to raise money for the Food Bank. The company has donated $75,000; the Memphis leadership team donated another $50,000 to encourage gifts from employees.

“Raymond James is deeply invested in Memphis, and our more than 900 local associates want to serve their most vulnerable neighbors,” said Field Norris, Memphis Ridgeway Complex manager, in a statement. “The Mid-South Food Bank has tripled its reach during this crisis and will continue to provide critical support to our community,”
