Elmsford, N.Y. (October 4, 2021) – Feeding Westchester, Westchester County’s largest nonprofit hunger-relief organization, is pleased to announce the addition of Louis P. Gallo of Eastchester to their Board of Directors.
An accomplished Commercial Banking Market Executive at Wells Fargo & Co., Gallo oversees companies with annual sales ranging from $5 million to $2 billion with operations throughout the Hudson Valley and Bronx markets. He oversees a team of eight bankers and serves as a company spokesperson on Commercial Banking matters in his markets. During his nearly 20-year banking career, Gallo has held board level positions with the 504 Company, Metro-Long Island Loan Committee and The Tuckahoe Youth Association.
“As we continue to see an incredibly increased need for food across the county, we are excited to welcome Lou, who has long shared in our commitment to nourish our neighbors in the fight against hunger,” said Karen C. Erren, President & CEO of Feeding Westchester. “His expertise and support will be tremendously valuable as we continue our collective efforts to alleviate hunger across Westchester County.”
A consistent local and national advocate and supporter, Wells Fargo has a long-standing relationship with Feeding America®, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the country, and its network of 200 member food banks, which includes Feeding Westchester.
Prior to COVID-19, Feeding Westchester’s network of 225 community partners and meal programs served between 125,000 to 150,000 individuals each month. During the height of the pandemic, however, that number more than doubled, and currently in 2021 the organization is still serving nearly 225,000 individuals each month on average.
Every $1 donated to Feeding Westchester provides three meals for local children, seniors, and families struggling with hunger.
