Local Food Pantries receive $30,000 in much needed support
North Easton Savings Bank recently donated $30,000 across several food pantries located throughout southeastern Massachusetts to help with the increasing food insecurity among local area families. The most recent support follows a total donation of $60,000 in 2020 to the same food pantries, which was given as a direct response to the community needs brought forth by the pandemic.
In past years, North Easton Savings Bank has donated annually to support community food pantries, but after reviewing the impact Covid-19 had on these organizations, the bank made the decision to increase its commitment.
“We feel as this region’s community bank, it is our privilege and also obligation to support our neighbors; especially during a time when people are most in need” said Rich Spencer, president and CEO of North Easton Savings Bank. “Community food pantries are a vital resource for so many, and it is our honor to once again partner with these organizations that so many count on to help sustain their households.”
The bank encourages everyone to reach out to their local food pantry to see how they can help. The Bank partners with SVDP Whitman Food Pantry, Shane Gives Thanks Carver, SVDP through St Peter's Parish Plymouth, Halifax Helping Hands Food Pantry, SVDP Halifax Food Pantry, Hanson Food Pantry, Easton Food Pantry, Cupboard of Kindness Norton Food Pantry, Our Daily Bread Mansfield, SVDP Sacred Heart Food Pantry Middleboro, Pembroke Food Pantry, Lenore’s Pantry North Attleboro, Bridgewater Food Pantry at Central Square Congregational Church, East Bridgewater Food Pantry, West Bridgewater Food Pantry, and SVDP Abington Food Pantry and hopes those that can provide much needed resources to these organizations will do so.
