OXFORD, Mass. — bankHometown announced the Nov. 1 kick off of the bank’s annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors fund-raising drive to help support local food pantries.
This marks the bank’s 17th year of hosting the program, which invites bank customers, employees, and members of the community to donate money toward food pantries until Nov. 30. All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by bankHometown and the total raised will be divided among participating food pantries across Connecticut and Massachusetts in the communities the bank serves. Checks should be made payable to “bankHometown Neighbors” and can be dropped off at any bankHometown branch or mailed to: Mary C. Mulrenin, Executive Secretary, bankHometown, 31 Sutton Ave., Oxford, MA 01450.
The bank encourages donations of any amount, with contributions of as little as $1 to $5 helping to provide 10 to 50 meals. As an added incentive to give, the bank will offer those who donate the opportunity to win a $25 gift card at each of its 16 locations.
In 2019 the campaign raised $26,000 and resulted in $2,000 contributions to participating food pantries.
“Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a terrific example of how communities come together to help others in need,” said Robert J. Morton, president and CEO of bankHometown. “bankHometown is proud to lead this annual giving tradition and thankful to our valued customers and employees who selflessly give each year.”
