PUTNAM — Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation has awarded $45,000 in emergency funding to nine Connecticut organizations including four local food banks.
“Now that our merger with Putnam Bank is complete (Putnam Bank is now a division of Centreville Bank), Centreville is proud to be part of the Eastern Connecticut community and we are committed to providing assistance where it is needed most,” said Harold M. Horvat, bank president, CEO and chairman.  “We realize that there continues to be an enormous amount of work to help the people and organizations of Eastern Connecticut that are being impacted financially by this pandemic. We hope that our ongoing support assists those who need it most.”
Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut (CFECT) received $25,000 to support the Neighbors for Neighbors Fund, which was established in April to help local nonprofits that are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle to assist those who are most vulnerable including low-income individuals, residents without health insurance, individuals with disabilities, among others — to address immediate basic needs such as healthcare, food, shelter, childcare and other supports. Centreville previously donated $25,000 to this fund, bringing the total grant to $50,000 to date.
The following eight food pantries will receive a total of $20,000: Daily Bread, Putnam; Friends of Assisi Food Pantry, Danielson; Pomfret Food Pantry, Pomfret Center; Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group Food Pantry, N. Grosvenordale; Ledyard Food Pantry, Ledyard; Project Pin Food Pantry, Moosup; St. Mary’s Church Food Pantry, Jewett City; St. Vincent’s De Paul Place, Norwich. This brings total contributions to $70,000 in support of pandemic relief since March.
