North Brookfield Savings Bank Fights Hunger with Annual Food Drive
As we say goodbye to Summer and the leaves start to turn, North Brookfield Savings Bank is gearing up for their Annual Food Drive fundraiser, offering the perfect chance to share some kindness, support the Community and help those in need during the season of giving.
North Brookfield Savings Bank’s Food Drive fundraiser, held from October 1 through October 31, helps provide much-needed food items to local neighbors and families in need. For every item collected through the Community, North Brookfield Savings Bank will contribute $1, for a total of up to $3,000, to help fund the pantries’ operations. The Bank’s goal is to collect at least 3,500 items in total, but the Bank will be contributing monetarily and is issuing a challenge to the Community.
Community members are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items, paper goods, toiletries, or any monetary donations at any of NBSB’s convenient branches anytime throughout the month of October, with the proceeds going directly to local food pantries.
Drop off locations:
- North Brookfield Branch: 9 Gilbert Street or 35 Summer Street
- East Brookfield: 100 West Main Street, Route 9
- West Brookfield Branch: 128 West Main Street, Route 9
- Ware Branch & Business Center: 40 Main Street, Route 9
- Belchertown Branch: 4 Daniel Shays Highway, Routes 9 & 202
- Three Rivers Branch: 2060 Main Street
Examples of non-perishable and non-food items that pantries can use are paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, diapers, and baby wipes; deodorant, soap, toothbrushes, and toothpaste; dry and canned pasta and soups, canned meats, tuna, and salmon; peanut butter, jelly, tea bags, and ground coffee; canned vegetables and fruits, hot and cold cereals, rice, cake mixes, pancake mix, syrup, powdered milk, and granulated sugar; canned juices, baby food, baby formula, granola, and cereal bars.
“The unfortunate reality is that there are people who struggle with hunger close to home in our local communities. The Food Drive is a great opportunity for local community members and North Brookfield Savings Bank to work together to make a real difference in our communities by helping our neighbors,” said North Brookfield Savings Bank Digital Marketing Strategist Nicole Syriac. “It is always heartwarming to see the kindness and generosity displayed through this drive by our communities, and we are so grateful for the contributions they make each year.”
