Salisbury Bank seized the opportunity to help its neighbors in need with another successful “Fill-the-Basket” food drive to benefit local food pantries.

All fourteen branch offices located throughout the tri-state area collected food and cash donations during the months of November and December. Together, they were able to collect and donate over 1,424 non-perishable food and household items, and $524 in cash donations.

In addition to what was collected at each branch location, Salisbury Bank also donated a total of $12,000 amongst the food pantry’s serving each area.

All items collected, including monetary contributions, were donated directly to the local food pantries serving each area:

  • Center for Compassion (Dover Plains, NY)
  • Deacon Jack Seymour Food Pantry (Newburgh, NY)
  • Fishes and Loaves (Canaan, CT)
  • Fishkill Food Pantry (Fishkill, NY)
  • Food of Life Pantry (Amenia, NY)
  • Hudson River Housing (Poughkeepsie and Red Oaks Mill, NY)
  • North East Community Center Food Access (Millerton, NY)
  • Owl’s Kitchen (Sharon, CT)
  • People’s Pantry (Great Barrington, MA)
  • Sheffield Food Assistance (Sheffield and South Egremont, MA)
  • The Corner Food Pantry (Lakeville and Salisbury, CT)
  • The Family of New Paltz (New Paltz, NY)

Salisbury Bank is proud to hold a campaign that benefits local food pantries that supply the basic necessities for hundreds of families not only during the holiday season but throughout the year. They are grateful for all their customers and community members who helped make this campaign successful.
