OXFORD, Mass. — Robert J. Morton, president and CEO of bankHometown, announced that the bank will once again hold its annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors fund-raising drive to help stock local food pantries.
Those who wish to participate have until Nov. 30 to make their donations. 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
Customers, employees, and members of the community are invited to donate money to food pantries during the month of November. All donations will be matched by bankHometown and the total raised will be divided among 13 food pantries across Massachusetts and Connecticut in the communities the bank serves.
In 2018, through contributions and matching donations, the campaign raised $25,000, which resulted in $2,500 contributions to 10 food pantries.
The bank encourages donations of any amount, as contributions of as little as $1 to $5 can help provide as many as 10 to 50 meals. As a giving incentive, the bank will offer those who donate the opportunity to win a $25 gift card at each of its 15 locations.    
The Connecticut food pantries that benefit include: Community Kitchens of Northeastern CT – Killingly, Daily Bread – Putnam; Friends of Assisi – Killingly; and TEEG in Thompson. Nine pantries in Massachusetts also benefit.
