09/26/2018 North Brookfield Savings Bank Fights Hunger with Annual Fall Food Drive
Annual Fall Food Drive from October 1 – 31 at all NBSB Branches
North Brookfield Savings Bank employees Joseph Ribiero, IRA Specialist/Teller; Cindy Fountain, Regional Branch Manager/Consumer Loan Manager and Sharon Campsie, Teller display a portion of the generous amount of food collected through the 2017 North Brookfield Savings Bank Fall Food Drive fundraiser.
With fall’s arrival and the season known for giving just upon us, it is a shared ambition among all to offer kindness and assistance to community members and neighbors in need. For North Brookfield Savings Bank, the kick off of their Annual Fall Food Drive offers the perfect opportunity to make charitable contributions and do a good deed.
North Brookfield Savings Bank’s Fall Food Drive fundraiser, held during the entire month of October, helps provide much needed food items to local neighbors and families in need. The Bank’s goal is to collect at least 3,500 items total, but the support doesn’t end there. For every item collected, North Brookfield Savings Bank will contribute $1, for a total of up to $3,000, to help fund the pantries’ operations.
Community members are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items, paper goods and toiletries at any NBSB branch anytime from October 1st through the 31st with the proceeds going directly to local food pantries.
