By Todd Cohen

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — While meeting its goal of raising $1.85 million for a 28,000-square-foot expansion of its 34,000-square-foot warehouse at 3655 Reed St. in Winston-Salem, the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina still is looking for gifts.

“We really need $2 million,” says Nan Holbrook Griswold, executive director.

Big gifts include $200,000 from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, $125,000 from Wachovia, $100,000 from the John and Anna Hanes Foundation, $77,500 from BB&T, $60,000 from the Winston-Salem Foundation and $50,000 each from the Cannon Foundation, Hillsdale Fund and Krispy Kreme.

Charlotte-based Carolina Tractor & Equipment Co. donated two Caterpillar forklifts to the campaign, which was chaired by T. Ray McKinney, executive vice president of Wachovia and managing director of Offitbank.
