Feed the ‘Boro affiliates with Food Bank

Written by  Friday, 08 August 2014 09:28

  While the search continues for a man who allegedly stole their money, Feed the ‘Boro, a local charitable organization, has now affiliated itself with the Statesboro Food Bank.

 

  Feed the ‘Boro began more than 20 years ago as a church project to be sure that needy families received Thanksgiving meals.  More than 3,000 dinners were distributed last year.

 

  Police have issued warrants for 30 year old Jeremy Wardell Foreman on charges of felony theft by conversion for taking $1,900 raised for Feed the ‘Boro.  Foreman Jeremy Wardell Foreman Jeremy Wardell Foreman volunteered his services to the organization, represented himself as “agent in charge” and took control of their donations.  He is accused of placing the money in a different account then taking the money and disappearing.

 

  Feed the ‘Boro is now one of the programs administered by the Statesboro Food Bank which will take care of the bookkeeping and maintain its funds in a separate bank account.   Since the Food Bank is a 501(c)(3)  organization, Feed the ‘Boro attains its tax-deductible status. 

 

  Yesterday Food Bank Director Joe Bill Brannon said he guaranteed the Feed the ‘Boro funds will be “safe and secure.”

 

  The search for Foreman began after it was discovered that a bank account he used for the organization’s  funds had been closed and the money missing.  Police learned he had used the money to make purchases at two local restaurants and for a plane ticket.  He is also accused of taking two pickup loads of donated items.
