Local Food Pantries Receive Donations from NBSB to Support Neighbors in Need

North Brookfield Savings Bank and its employees have always been deeply connected to their local communities, offering service through various acts of volunteerism and contributions. The Bank and its valued community ambassadors are always striving to find a way to spread hope, kindness and support to those in their communities, whether it be offering an uplifting word to someone who is struggling, making a donation to an important cause, or giving time to make our shared community experience the best it can be. While as of late they have not been able to be out in the community doing what they love most, they have still been suggesting and implementing new ways of showing their care for the communities.

 

Most recently, in an effort to ease the struggles of community members, North Brookfield Savings Bank made donations to local food pantries to help the remarkable pantry volunteers to stock their shelves and distribute grocery store gift cards to local residents in need. In a time when many locals are facing hardships because of the pandemic, including job loss and illness, it is an unfortunate reality that some residents are also struggling to put food on the table. It is the Bank’s hope to do their part to ease those struggles.

As a local and dependable bank, North Brookfield Savings Bank has been a part of its communities for over 165 years. It is their commitment to their values of supporting their communities and sharing kindness that drives them and forms the foundation of their business. This has always been their way of doing business, but now more than ever they are working hard to ensure that their community members know NBSB is here to support them. From the creation and distribution of vital and informative resources on their website, through active support of their customers as they adopt unfamiliar but important remote banking options, as they implement innovative ways to continue to offer the same great service through their drive-ups and as they assist businesses as they navigate loans programs, to offering great online and mobile banking options, NBSB is here to help.

 

“It is an unfortunate reality that these hard and uncertain times can pose great challenges for many individuals. Our local food pantries are great resources that help support our community members in need and it is our honor to help them in their efforts,” said North Brookfield Savings Bank President and CEO Donna Boulanger. “Thank you to the many local volunteers who keep these vital pantries running during these times, when they are needed more than ever.”
